BEACH BABIES (1930)

APC - BLOG LOGO (540x540)

Welcome to American Photo Colorizing .com’s photo blog.
The year is 1930. The place: Highland Beach, Maryland. I’m trying to fit in some beach images from the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer, by Labor Day. I love this 1930 photograph. I love the girls in their old-time swim suits. But most of all – I love the . . . no, I absolutely LOVE the awesomely cool convertible that got them there. Ohhh, the cruisin’ I would’ve done as a teenager in this majestic tin can! Mmmm-mmmmmm!!

The year is 1912. ‘Horseless Carriages’ cruise onto a boardwalk along Southern California’s now famous surfin’ spot, “Rincon”. Today, Amtrak commuter trains hug the coastline, and the Ventura Freeway aka Route 101 winds it’s way along those very same cliffs.

This scene is located between Ventura and Santa Barbara – a 10 minute drive from American Photo Colorizing.com’s studio. Another popular surf spot, “Surfers Point”, is just a couple miles south of The Rincon.

The year is 1885. Here’s what the well-dressed beach crowd was wearing 130 years ago, when the universal rule in America wws “Let nobody see thy knees”. My, doesn’t this family look thrilled! I colorized this image several years ago, and nicknamed them the “Pugsleys”, after the son on the Adams Family. The name just stuck, like the chewing gum on the bottom of a good man’s shoe.

The year is 1922. This one is “hot off the presses”, as I completed colorizing this wonderful Atlantic City image only a few minutes ago. This photo turned out just I hoped it would – looking like a group of 2014 girls dressed up like the Roaring ’20s. But, no – this is in fact, a group of girls at the Jersey Shore in 1922 – dressed up like the Roaring ’20s.

IT’S SUMMER FUN AS ONLY THE JERSEY SHORE CAN DELIVER IT. FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT PLEASURE – HERE’S A PROMO FILM OF SEASIDE HEIGHTS, NJ IN THE 1950s. SEASIDE HEIGHTS IS ABOUT AN HOUR NORTH OF ATLANTIC CITY. IN THE 1960s, MY FAMILY WOULD OFTEN HEAD DOWN THE GARDEN STATE PARKWAY TOWARD SEASIDE HEIGHTS AND ASBURY PARK. ENJOY!

The year is 1935. Girls on the beach . . . Brian Wilson spent a lifetime penning and singing songs about them. Now, that we’re celebrating “4th of Julie” week, it’s high time we paid tribute to the summer girls. These ladies are clearly enjoying a day of fun in the sun, in this photograph taken nearly 80 summers ago. And as The Beach Boys often sing, “The girls on the beach – are all within reach”.

The year is 1910. Here we are in the first week of summer -and to celebrate, we’re at the beach at Waikiki. Yesterday we met the Girls of Summer 1920 – and today, it’s the boys’ turn to soak up the sun. These suntanned fellows are all brothers – including 2nd from the left – the Babe Ruth of Surfing and Olympic Swimming, Duke Kahanamoku! Duke is generally credited with popularizing the Hawaiian sport of surfing in the United States. Yes, long before The Beach Boys and Dick Dale – there was Duke!

The year is 1920. This is the first week of summer -and to commemorate it, here we are at the beach in Southern California. These healthy examples of Roaring ’20s “untamed youth” are some of Mack Sennett’s famous bathing beauties – stars of the silver screen. Fellows, now don’t you go falling for these perky young super-models. They would’ve been about 115 years old today. But over a century ago, these were the Girls of Summer.
