McCall's Magazine, August 1908

Browsing my magazine collection tonight I came across this little beach beauty from 1908.  Her knee-length bathing costume is made of mohair (of all things!) trimmed with braid, and comes accessorised with cap, stockings and shoes.   Clearly she's not going to be engaged in any strenuous swimming - if she enters the water at all she'll probably stick to bobbing around in the shallows.
