Last week's Sepia Saturday post featured women on the beach, so my post was also beach themed. This week's theme is a little closer to Rosie the Riveter, but I seem to be stuck on the beach.
I just love this real-photo postcard of two women in their sailor suits on the beach in Newport, Oregon in 1913. There are some interesting details, including the headband, and the bracelet worn above the elbow. There also appears to be a car on the beach. You can see it if you look off in the distance between the two young women. For whatever reason, what thrills me the most is that they are clearly sitting on a classic Pendleton Mills wool blanket. It doesn't get any better than that.
