Sepia Saturday #28 Its Summertime! Head to the Beach House!
My great grandparents owned a "Summer Cottage" at Sagamore Beach, Cape Cod, Massachusetts that they called "Two-Ways" as it had a fabulous view of the bay on one side, and lovely gardens on the other. Each year they would pack up and leave their city home in Worcester for fun in the sun! This family home was sold in the 1950's.
The photo below shows what might be a Sunday afternoon gathering, after a round of golf by the men -note that the attire doesn't quite seem beach appropriate- and they were entertaining a special guest. The approximate date is unknown, but through family birthdates I would guess this to be early 1930's.
They all seem very proper, although I notice that my great grandfather (on the far left), is glancing at Albert's shoes and smiling...
This one shows them all having a great laugh as Albert shows off his stylish shoes... high heels, seriously?
And then they all relax, after having a good chuckle...
