Free Printable Fashion History Illustration for Altered Art, Graphic Design, Papercrafts or Scrapbooking: Beach Promenade Costumes, 1886

They walked, and the long waves rolled and murmured rhythmically beside them;
the fresh salty wind blew free and unobstructed in their faces,
wrapped itself around their ears, and made them feel slightly numb and deliciously dizzy.
They walked along in that wide, peaceful, whispering hush of the sea
that gives every sound, near or far, some mysterious importance.
Thomas Mann, Buddenbrooks: The Decline of a Family
