Vintage swimsuit related display for the Strathmere Library


I was asked if I could provide a 'beach related' display to showcase in the Rita C. Schiavo Library in Strathmere NJ. So I took the oportunity to combine my love of Strathmere and my love of vintage clothing and created this small display. I used 3 swimsuits from my collection along with a hat and a head scarf that has a New Jersey beach theme. I printed out several vintage photos that I have of girls in swimsuits in Strathmere, dating from the Teens to the 1940s, and two old advertisements for Strathmere that feature people in swimsuits,  and I framed them for the display as well.
It was limited space and done kind of last minute, but I'm really happy with how it turned out.








Bye for now, Carol

Very cool.
That's one of the fun things about collecting ... when you get to share it with others, as you've done here. Very cool.
