At the beach 1948

Posted for the Vintage Photos Theme Park's theme "On the beach".

Me apparently being a captivating beach conversationalist at Plage-Laval, Quebec.

Sweet Caps were the most popular cigarette in Canada at the time. They lasted till 2011 in Canada; American Sweet Caps were lost in the mists of time by then.

I have another photo, of poor quality, of 1940s bathing costumes at the same beach. They certainly look retro.

Once upon the time, there was the word "pram" now probably one has to google it to find what it means!

John FitzGerald replied to Dinesh:

"Pram" was being replaced by "baby carriage" here even when I was very young, Dinesh, but in Canada and the States we still dress children in pram suits in winter. So we still know the word but prefer its longer variant. Can't think why.

They were pretty common back then. Now everyone uses strollers.
