This funny Valentine featuring a big-eyed bathing beauty was printed by George S. Carrington Greeting Card Manufacturing Company of Chicago, Illinois, probably in the 1920s.
Seven inches tall, the flapper bathing belle's head swings back and forth on a small metal brad, allowing her to make big bright googly eyes to admirers on both sides. The caption reads "Oh, You Heart-Breaker."
This is a pair of canvas bathing shoes from the same period, similar to those donned by the Valentine bather above. They are as narrow as they look; they fit my AAAA feet just fine, but are probably too small for most of today's beach-goers.
