Swimming on the Oregon Coast


Swimming on the Oregon Coast


Sepia-toned image of a group of people on a beach. Rock cliffs topped with pine trees rise in the background, and the ocean stretches out to the image right. Eight people stand in a row; four men, three women, and one boy. One of the men is in a swim tank and trunks; the other men are in regular clothing, though one is barefoot with his pants rolled up. Two of the women wear swimsuits with hip-length skirts, bloomers and stockings. One wears her hair long and loose. Another woman stands in a below-the-knee swimsuit and dark stockings. A young boy in a long-sleeved shirt, vest and long pants stands at the very left of the row, and two people (probably male) walk down the beach in the far background.
