A day on the beach in 1914 (U.S.A.)
Ein Tag am Strand, 1914 (U.S.A.)

Here we catch a glimpse on a day on the beach in 1914. The people shown enjoyed their day in Atlantic City beach, New Jersey, U.S.A.

---

Here we see an interesting scene of beach in 1914. Many people are paddling or wading in the water.

---

A close-up of some people enjoying the water.

---

The women are wearing dress-like bathing suits. Note that the legs are covered completely. And they wear bonnet-like caps.

---

Next to the cap and the bathing suit (nearly fully covering body except the arms) this woman also has a parasol. Covering so much of the body was a question of the modesty of those days and the fashion of having a fair complexion.

---

---

In those days men often wore one-piece bathing suits. Note that this is a two-piece suit. So far we are not sure if is this was a just another style or if this suit was a new fashion in those days.
