In this colorized photo by Sanna Dullaway, we see beach goers in Atlantic City, New Jersey circa 1905. Check out the swimming attire where people had to be covered and wear navy blue. Can you imagine being a woman and swimming in the water with nylons and shoes? The candid expressions in this group shot are amazing. If it wasn’t for the attire, the colored photo could be mistaken for one taken much more recently than 100 years ago!
