Santa Monica, 1946
Prepping for vacation, I've got playsuits and bathing suits on the brain! It's fitting that I post this photograph of my grandparents from Santa Monica, CA in 1946. They lived in Los Angeles when it was still Orange Groves and farms and this is one of the few photos (only?) I've ever seen of them at the beach.

I tend to believe that this was a playsuit rather than a bathing suit since my grandfather doesn't looked that prepared for their outing and I believe my grandmother had two-piece bathing suits around this time (she still had them when I was growing up).
