Silvery Sands… The Blue Green Wonder of Curling Waves…

The indescribable fascination of dainty ankles clad in Cadet Silk Hosiery.

This is an ad for hosiery, from the August 1923 issue of the Ladies’ Home Journal.  Not exactly a beach staple today, but  some people DO still wear hose on the beach.

A few years ago a few teachers from my school planned a little beach outing, and one of my friends went on the trip.  They got there and got changed into their bathing suits, when one came out in panty hose beneath hers.  The rest of them were too surprised to even comment.  Every day she went into the ocean wearing her hosiery.

Maybe she loves old magazines as much as I do, and that’s where she got the idea!
