Pictures of the Day

Today's pictures come curteosy of the every fabulous, ever fashionable Amy Z. Quinn, fellow writer, reporter and the head honco of Citizenmom. The first picture is of her grandfather on the beach in Atlantic City in the late 1940s. The second is over her grandmother, mother and aunt on the beach in North Wildwood in about 1952. Here's what she has to say about the third picture:

"The women are my grandmother (the short one on the right), and two of her sisters, all West Philly girls, all now deceased. They were three out of 11 children -- six sisters -- in their family. I love this photo so much because you know they were right in the middle of some kind serious woman chat and probably went directly back to whatever they were talking about when the shutter snapped. I'm looking forward to some moments like that with some of my own sisters at the Cove this weekend."

Look at those bathing suits! Can anyone breathe in those things?

Those bathing suits are crazy -- who ever said ruching was anyone's friend? -- but I'd rock the sunglasses. Esp. the big round ones my Aunt Irene is wearing in the middle.

Thanks for posting these!
