Early beachgoers. I wonder if they wore bathing suits in 1910?

To answer my own question about bathing suits, I read yesterday that there was a huge amount of preparation involved in the early 1900s. Weeks before the families took boats to Nags Head, the mothers and wives had to sew the bathing suits. They had no access to ready made bathing suits.

The second photo may have been taken on the porch of the Outlaw cottage. It was the 13th cottage built on the ocean side of Nags Head. It was built in 1885.
