  • Four handsome young men at a swimming pool - circa 1930s


  • Four hunky swimmers performing acrobatics - 1930s

  • Two handsome men in swimming costumes - USA, 1930s


  • Anton Zukas and friends - 1930s (2)

    I believe Anton Zukas, the University of Iowa swimming champion of the 1930s, is the hunk in the centre of picture.


  • Anton Zukas and friends - 1930s (1)

    I believe Anton Zukas, the University of Iowa swimming champion of the 1930s, is the hunk second from left in the picture.

  • Madame Luisa Tetrazzini getting ready for Halloween - 1920


  • Woman sitting on an over-hanging branch of a tree - early 20th Century

    And what a dainty little hat she is wearing! Though how she managed to crawl out along the branch, wearing that long dress, and without falling off into the river below, is a most profound mystery to me.


  • A group of women singing around the piano

    I believe these ladies, from San Francisco, met once a week to learn and sing risque sea shanties, which they would perform on occasion at Fisherman's Wharf - for charitable purposes.

  • Women striking "Grecian poses" - 1899

    I think they must have been from some institution. . .

  • Ladies dancing at a 'Greek Festival' - 1909

    How very silly . . .


  • A Ladies' tea-party

    Charming . . .simply charming!

  • Two young ladies standing in front of their motor car


  • Iris & Daphne

    After years of hard work, this year's wine crop finally looked as if it might make a decent wine, and with any luck enable them to even sell a couple of bottles.


  • The woman who loved cocktails


  • Pearl - 1920s

    No particular reason for the name other than the fact that she is wearing a most charming pearl necklace, as I am sure Mr. Rubber Ducky would agree. I think she is slightly cross-eyed, as well . . .

  • Three rather serious ladies sitting around a fine occasional table - early 20th Century
