Some of the early photos are simply awesome; showing my husband's Grandparents as a young, frivolous couple.
Several times in their young married life they ventured from their home in Montreal to the seaside at Old Orchard, Maine. They forged friendships there that lasted for decades.
The pictures featured here today were taken on the Brownie shown above. However, Nana, below seems to be using a smaller folding model. Please click on any of the pictures for more detail.
I love my grandmother-in-law's bathing costume. Is it an original Jantzen? Here's a picture of the iconic Jantzen bathing suit.
And I adore the friend who looks like Charlie Chaplin sans moustache.
