Wilson Avenue Beach, Back in the Day

The Chicago Tribune ran this photo in 1949, as part of a "Chicago History" column. It shows women swimming at Wilson Avenue Beach. Thank goodness heavy woolen swimsuits and stockings are no longer in style!

Original photo is available on eBay from here: Wilson Avenue Bathing Beauties
