    This is just THE BEST image I’ve seen in ages. I said so on Facebook and even had to share it on Facebook. You’ve found a doozie!

      Thanks, im6 for the Facebook posting. I too loved this image. There were so many things to see, some quite odd.

      • im6 Says:

        Yes, that’s exactly it. Did you notice the back of the chair the woman on the right is sitting in? Not to mention that same woman looks completely BEAT 🙂 And they both look a little old to be playing with that doll. There must be some little girl out playing in the surf off-camera.

        im6,
        I did notice the back of her chair, but didn’t know what it was. I also noticed she is wearing stockings while sunning her legs.

        I loved the hat on the other woman and wondered what she was holding in her left hand.

        The doll is one of the oddities in the picture.

      Gnu,
      What a loss! He always made me laugh. His command of voices was extraordinary. He did amazing characters.

      minicapt,
      What amazed me was how skimpy some of the outfits from the 20’s looked.

      I would never have guessed they were mother and daughter given the completely different styles of clothing.

      Nice detective work. I should have done a photo search, but I’m as lazy as the woman on the right! I was surprised to see the date of 1951. I would have guessed sometime in the 1930s.

        im6,
        I would have also said the 1930’s, but then we have to remember the 50’s were a bit of a throwback after the war. Hats were still in!
