Poster of the Day – Question of the Day


A photo is making its upteenth journey through the intertubes recently that I thought was interesting in more ways than one. 

 Annette Kellerman promoted a woman’s right to
wear a simple, fitted, one-piece bathing suit 1907.

She was arrested for indecency
on a Revere, MA beach.

Along with the Poster of the Day comes this Question of the Day: would anyone like to venture a guess as to what group of people vehemently opposed Kellerman’s “promotion” and supported jail time for her “transgression?”

    Dear Rev.: If I had to venture a guess I’d say it was the good Christian people who were horrified.
