Dress of the Day - July 22, 2011

Dress of the Day: Bathing suits (1922). As the temperature approaches 100 degrees in Philadelphia, nothing is more refreshing than a swim. Here are bathing suits from 1922. This photo in the Library of Congress collection shows a policeman enforcing a rule that bathing suits at a beach in Washington D.C. must not be more than six inches above the knee. How times have changed!
