At the Beach - Page Two

At the Beach. PAGE TWO!

The trip to the beach almost always includes a camera. LOST GALLERY rescued photographs taken at the beach are plentiful, rivaling pictures of children and cars and Mom's new dress.

So let's go to the beach.

Some of these are family gatherings, others are guys showing off and then there are the glam pictures of mom or the girlfriend. Most are really poor snaps while others are from professional itinerant photographers out making a buck at the beach.

As you review the many prints on these pages, think about the conversation that preceded the shot. Think about the expressions on their faces, the hot day, the sea air, the sounds. Are you there yet?

As usual, you can find larger versions just by clicking on the picture.

THE KIDS Lesson one. It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.

"What are they doing?"


  1. Some really good shots. I'm especially fond of the woman half on/half off the towel.

    And I've always wondered exactly how bad did those wool suits weigh when they got wet and how bad did they smell. I'm thinking gym suit in a locker over the weekend might come close.

  2. Thanks Tattered and Lost. It's hard for me to pick a favorite. This seems to be the biggest category I have ever assembled. It's going to run at lest six pages.

    Watch out for page five which will publish on August 27, 2012. It is made up of beach photographs, all from the late 1920's.

    And yes, I have often wondered about how those wool suits fit and felt after a dip. In terms of smell, there's probably not much difference in the odor of a wet sheep and a wet dog.
