From the photo album...
|Scanned photos in Galveston, 1954|
Here you can see at least one pier or boardwalk that is enclosed.. (I took the name boardwalkbarb later for my emails, and people always wondered why. I love the song, "Under the Boardwalk" as well as the water. I'm sure this flimsy structure is no longer standing. But I love the interfaces in life and nature, the place where two elements come together and create an edge of each, a blending.
I think my sister (smaller girl) and I are holding coffee cans as our beach toys. My dad was probably the photographer! Notice the ladies in their bathing caps. Lower picture shows my grandmother with the children. Incidentally, neither of us girls could swim yet. I learned years later in a St. Louis indoor swimming pool.
This is my Sepia Saturday contribution this week. Come over and see some other seaside shots!
