Below you can also see two postcards of Worthing beach. It is interesting to see how people used to dress up for the beach. Suits, ties, waistcoats and hats for the men. Everyone wore a hat. I doubt if there many cases of skin cancer back then. Of course, without sunglasses, hats and umbrellas were necessary to protect one's eyes from the sun too. These postcards were published by W. H. Applebee in 1913. For more old photographs please visit Sepia Saturday. As always, click the pictures to enlarge!
