Victorian Bathing Machine

Women carted out into the ocean

Victorian Bathing Machine thanks to Jim Serritella

In the 1890s, women were required to stay fully clothed until they got inside a bathing machine to change into their suit; then someone would wheel the cart out into the ocean, so the woman can get into the water privately without being seen in a swimsuit.
