Huh?

It's kind of a hobby... seeing how deep I can
dive into the sea of information we
are all sinking in. Woosh

coogee beach


This is Coogee Beach from way back sometime around 1900s. (Thats in New South Wales, Australia if you didn't know!) The cracks on this picture add so much cool texture to it. I love old pictures, they are almost like a time machine's window. They let us gaze into the past.


They also challenge our "temporal stereotypes" so to speak. I was under the impression that European people of the 1900s were kind of prudish and would bathe at the beach in a lot of clothes (like those on the right) unlike those on the left that seem to be revealing a whole lot more. Was this common for some at the time?
