The Girls of Baywatch, 1917

Introducing the "Keystone Girls" of 1917. The photograph was taken at Venice Beach, about 15 miles from Los Angeles. These lovely bathing beauties, as they were affectionately called, were part of the Keystone Pictures Studio, famous for the Keystone Cops and where Charley Chaplin got his start.

It's a while ago you took that picture then JT :-)
Looks like a lively bunch. Excellent idea posting this one. Makes you think how time flies.

So much nicer than the modern day blight, JT.

Wow, look at all those real boobs! You could never pull that off at a movie studio today.

And their outfits were considered risqué!

Notice also all their ankles are covered. That was considered risqué in the day.

Farmgirl: You took the words right out of my mouth. I couldn't get away with saying that!
