First picture (1/360) Circa 1911: Bathers at Ostend in Belgium:

Damn! Great Great Grandma Gretta had a bi*tchin' bod! Seriously. Look at those hips and those legs! She's actually got curves and she owns them! Excellent!
 
2013-05-06 02:47:55 AM  
(24/360) Circa 1913: A woman is seen in her bathing suit on a New Jersey beach.

Holy crap! Look at the curves on that woman! And I'm glad to see that nipples weren't a no-no back then.
 
2013-05-06 02:54:14 AM  
(32/360) March 1929: A vacationer is seen sitting on a New Jersey beach.

She reminds me of Jordan from Real Genius.
 
2013-05-06 02:56:53 AM

Nice body on the one carrying the other.

(103/360) Circa 1929: An officer from the West Palm Beach police force is seen measuring a woman's bathing suit to ensure that it conforms with regulations introduced by beach censors.

I'll bet you that guy loved his job. However, I would think wearing that head-to-toe police uniform on West Palm Beach would have to suck.
 
2013-05-06 03:09:54 AM  
(108/360) Circa 1925: Five women at the beach posing in their swimming costumes.

Wow. What a classic look. They could be posing for the album cover of a female rock band.
 
2013-05-06 03:13:57 AM  
(144/360) August 1936: Eva Morrison, from Boston, on the shore.

If you look carefully, that's an American flag in the middle of all that chest.
 
2013-05-06 03:17:33 AM  
(165/360) Circa 1933: A woman sports her newly created crossword swimsuit with matching bathing hat at Palm Beach, Fla.

Phew. For a minute there, I thought she was pixilating!
 
2013-05-06 03:21:28 AM  
(168/360) August 1930: Helen Howell and the rest of the acrobatic Lalvi dancers, currently appearing at the London Palladium.

It looks like she got Aquaman, Aqualad, and Namor to pose with her.
 
2013-05-06 03:23:13 AM  
(169/360) July 1938: Two swimsuited girls are carrying their canoe on their heads.

The lady in white... perfect.
 
2013-05-06 03:29:43 AM

2013-05-06 03:37:51 AM

See kids? Cameltoe existed even way back in the 1950s.
 
2013-05-06 03:40:29 AM  
(316/360) Circa 1959: Actress Joan Scott on the beach at Cannes.

Mother of God... look at those gams.

May 1964: Two Dutch teenage girls sit on a beach, one wearing a Beatles towel draped around her shoulders.

Yes, and the other one -- for some reason -- has a plumbob attached to her shoulder strap. WTF?

I'm sorry. The plumbob picture is (320/360).

(322/360) Circa 1965: Actress Sally Field poses with a surfboard on a California beach.

Gidget!
 
2013-05-06 03:53:18 AM  
(326/360) October 1968:Two young women on motorcycles feed the seagulls on the beach at Daytona, Fla.

Those are Harley-Davidson Sportsters (883cc Ironhead engines) they're sitting on. Classic.
 
2013-05-06 03:54:42 AM  
(330/360) March 1963: A woman is seen sunbathing in Spain.

Another timeless picture.
 
2013-05-06 03:57:53 AM  
(337/360) Circa 1969: Welsh model Marilyn Mandy Rice-Davies relaxes on a beach in Majorca.

lol... It looks like her head was 'shopped onto someone else's body, and they didn't get the scale matched up.
 
2013-05-06 03:59:47 AM  
(340/360) Circa 1965: A woman is seen wearing a floral patterned beach jacket with frilly trimming and a matching bikini.

What a gorgeous figure!

(342/360) Circa 1960: Spanish painter Pablo Picasso makes a young woman wearing a bikini smile on the beach at Golfe Juan on the Riviera, Vallauris, France.

He probably just told her the joke about why sex works better when the man is shorter than the woman.
 
2013-05-06 04:05:51 AM  
(348/360) May 1971: Caroline Munro modeling a bikini near a beach.

Dear Subby: Thanks for this. It was fun to look at all those old pictures. An old guy like me appreciates stuff like this.

Excellent discussion thread.

Mike_LowELL: Excellent discussion thread.


I'm sorry. I think I was the only old guy awake when I started going through the pictures. I guess I got carried away.
 
2013-05-06 07:21:24 AM  
If you want to put pictures on the internet, please stop calling them rare. Almost everybody in the world can now see them.

Sweet Jebus chips, you looked at all 360? I was bored out of my skull after 18...

The secret to getting a main page green? 35 page hits and comments, even if it's from one guy...

Rock on older farker!

Why are you guys not hotlinking to the best ones so I don't have to spend an hour flipping through almost 400 slide show pics?

Dammit, Fark, I am disappoint.

Heh...I remember reading a memoir by one of Roosevelt's Rough Riders; they got sent to Cuba with WOOL uniforms, which he said would have been just about right for fall...in Montana.

(291/360)Needs a photoshop.

were there no big fat women in these black and white days?
 
2013-05-06 07:47:48 AM  
Worst. Vintage Porn. Ever.

/why is the title 'before the bikini' and half the slideshow is after the bikini?
 
2013-05-06 07:58:50 AM  
Image 141 has some ass cheek.

I used to hate taking the bathing machine to the beach. You never knew if you could find a place to park or you might find a place to park and it's right next to some pervert with one of the old fashioned full format cameras. You know what happens next: the wife is in there changing in to the swimming suit and there's flashes of gunpowder going off.

When I bought it, it was "Oh look. Mr. Freakstorm, captain of Industry, has a bathing machine. He certainly has the moxie." But it's paid for itself over time. I'm looking at the 1902 models. Put the one I have up for sale on the list over at Craig's Corner and use the money for a down payment on the new one.
 
2013-05-06 08:11:00 AM  
It's nice to see a thread with only a single pervert who actually looked at every picture.
 
2013-05-06 08:12:28 AM  
How great to see that women in those days had breasts,hips and a figure to die for

Neil Hamilton, in picture #74, played Commissioner Gordon in the TV series "Batman."

Someone once told me there were no fat people in the old days, except for William Howard Taft.  A good number of those women in the early slides look at least a bit zaftig, and I assume the rest are just jailbait.

Quick! To the Time Machine!

I thought a lot of those people were ugly but then I realized they were just wearing really stupid hats. Apparently people back then didnt even SWIM without a hat.
