Suits & Cycles.

These photos, from Holland's Nationaal Archief, depict wacky doodads of years past: bathing suits made of wood, a "one wheel motor cycle," bicycle tire flotation devices, and a pram with a radio attached ("to keep the baby quiet"). I don't know about you, but I'd be curious to see what a wooden bathing suit feels like - those one-shouldered versions pictured below look pretty hip to me. See more, here.


Any exciting plans for the weekend? I'll be doing some spring cleaning, meeting a few friends for brunch, and, of course, enjoying my homemade cheese. See you back here Monday!

  3. Oh, how fun - these are incredible! Yes, it would be quite an adventure to wear the wooden bathing suits. And the floating devices-OMG! Also, are these two dolls in the pram? I'm sure the radio will keep them nice and quiet (haha!). Thanks so much for sharing and have a wonderful weekend!!
