This strand cabine was at the seafront of Eastbourne. It showed how the Victorian ladies were carried into the sea so that nobody could see them in a bathing suit.

Great find Gattina. It's good to see that at least one still exists!

I'm certainly glad I didn't live in that era. I never would have survived. Excellent find, Gattina.

I guess they were a LOT more modest than now days. I thought it looked like the child catches cart from the movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang..Staring Dick VanDyke. I love the bright colors in the cart.

elaine said...

Thank God we don't live in those times now. I love swimming and wouldn't want to do it in one of those cabins. Too claustrophobic!

I think we need to bring those things back! I'm all for a private escort to the water so no one is subjected to me in my swimsuit!

This is wonderful, Gattina! It's always so great to see things from the 'long ago', and to hear how things were done then. Was it put into and out of the water by horses?

See Reflecting on Wordless Wednesday , or my whole blog I Was Born2Cree8.

I bet those peoples sure would get a shock to come back now and see peoples walking around in almost nothing like they do now. Bark!!

Marsha said...

HAH! Now they stand out in the open topless or naked waiting for the papparazzi to take their pictures!

claudie said...

It is not that long ago that respectable British Christian women were as modest as some Muslim women.

Jeanette said...
