As Westporters try to figure out hot trends for this summer, we should look back too.
Eighty years ago — on June 1, 1936 — Westport’s “Miss Anne Peacock” strutted this look.
The photo caption describes her “suit with red and white halter neck, water proof woven beach bag, red and white practical and comfortable sock-beach shoes, and a natural straw coolie hat.”
The shot was taken at “the fashionable Longshore Club in Westport, Conn.”
