Following my last HHH post featuring the fashion of male life savers at the turn of the century, this month we're looking at female life saver fashion and its progress over a few short years. That is, once the 20th century came about and people put the practicality of saving lives above the modesty required in the passing Victorian age.
So join me over at the Heroes, Heroines and History blog for Early Life Saver Fashion Part 2 and let me know what you think.
Following my posts on sea bathing and the beginnings of life saving societies and swimming lessons, I'm over at Heroes, Heroines and History posting images of the fashion changes in the world of lifesavers, or the people we know today as life guards.
In this instance, fashion changed to allow freedom of movement for limbs while running and swimming without the hassle of heavy clothing dragging the rescuer down underwater and putting his/her own life in danger.
So my post, Early Life Saver Fashion Part 1, shows the male lifesavers since they posed for photos first, and my next post, on July 5th,will show the women.
