Throwback Thursday " Vintage Bathing Suits"

B. Altman & Co. Catalog, Spring and Summer, 1896. 

How cool is this ad from the famous New York City department store, B. Altman? I cannot imagine those bathing suits were comfortable, but I guess that is all they knew! Flannel bathing suits were really not a smart idea! The bathing tights with feet are just quite too much in my opinion. What a fun piece of history to enjoy after 122 years! It must have been hard to swim in these, I would imagine.
