Because it is so hot these old pictures are interesting.

Wonder what the temperature was?  This old picture dates back to about 1950's and shows how things used to be.  If you wanted a suntan, this is the way you got it.....out in the hot sun showing your bodies.  Later on, there was the electric suntan booth which could be used inside.  Still later on, and probably most popular right now is the spray-on tan.  I was always so envious of girls who tanned well because I didn't.

And here's another picture of how it used to be.  Possibly the same girls in the swim suits of the day.....one piece suits....no bikinis.  These pictures were found in an old photo album that Super Sleuth Anita Hart Fuller loaned me.  She may be able to identify the ladies.  Written on the back of one of the pictures is, "Millie - Suzy - Carolyn and Beth in Carolyn's back yard."  

How things have changed!!

It is remarkable how fashions have changed over the years, but we all still enjoy the pool on hot days.

But Ray, the pool is often like a hot bath!  It becomes too hot to enjoy!

I'm going to beat Anita in identifying the bathing beauties.

They are Mildred Taylor "Millie", Suzy Hoffman Boyett, ( former Searcy Public Library Head Librarian), Carloyn Thompson (no relation), And Mary Beth Cook "Beth".

Thank you, Don Thompson!  Super Sleuth!  But are you sure?  I thought Suzy might be Suzy Hartsfield but I don't know her maiden name.
