In the Good Old Summer Time

The last two decades of the 19th-century and roughly the first two of the 20th offer us a glimpse of a world very different from our own. Even while partaking of the relaxed atmosphere found in towns located on the shore people continued to abide by formal rules of decorum that were part of the Victorian world. This formality was upheld, in no small part, by the prevailing styles of dress which varied little between the city and the sea.
