A Matter of Paradigm

Watching an old TCM movie this morning, there was a reference to the 1920’s ‘Sennett Bathing Beauties’. Curious, I search the internet to find out more and discover several old photos of this group of ladies. The pictures show several attractive, young women enjoying their prime of life in the very latest styles of swimwear from a century ago. Scratching my grey beard, this interesting observation floated into my mind… that girls of that time obviously knew they were good-looking and didn’t feel the need to ‘show it all’ to every Tom, Dick and Harry, as many feel they must today. Turning the TV to an old John Wayne western, I clear my thoughts…
