Unidentified couple in bathing suits


Unidentified couple in bathing suits


Black and white image of a man and woman standing on a grassy field in front of some trees. They each wear one-piece swimsuits consisting of a darker bottom section and a lighter top. The woman also swears a bathing cap, though her hair is not completely contained by the cap. The couple stand close together with their arms around each other's waists, and the woman holds the man's hand where it rests on her hip. Museum records do not identify the couple, but this image was part of the Herbert E. McMullen bequest, and appeared to be one of several intended to document hairstyles of the day. McMullen was a local photographer who also collected other images of daily life in the area.
