Lustful Ankles


This picture was taken in 1897 on Scarborough Beach, England. Bathing trolleys were made so that Victorian ladies could get undressed and into their ever so modest bathing suits, and then they would be pulled to the ocean and into the water so that the women could get into the water without revealing themselves to lusty men’s gazes….because I guess if Victorian men saw an ankle it might drive them to fits of passion??

    You doubt it? Those boats are all just men trying to get a look at the women when they step out of the huts.
