The Brooklyn beauties at the seashore in 1900

I’m not sure which Brooklyn beach this is—Brighton? Coney Island?

Wherever we are, it’s clear that this tight circle of ladies in their summer frocks and elaborate hats appears to be enjoying the seashore. So is the next group, a coed clique with two men wearing what look like dark hats and suits!

[Bettman-Corbis, 1900]

    At the very edge of the right side of the photo there appears to be a boy about 10 – 12 years old, with very short pants or bathing trunks on. SACRE BLEU!! What a scandal,where is his mother?

    How beautiful! This looks like Brighton Beach and in the background is the tail end of the giant Brighton Hotel or the bathing pavilion.
