The setting for this fashion photo shoot is a playground in front of a classic chain link fence. It accompanied a multi-page article showing summer fashions to readers of the April 1959 edition of Good Housekeeping magazine. I choose 2 pages of the article to share for today’s summer theme posting. I love that the dress can double as a beach towel. Very cute and very clever.
