Classic Week - the Bathers

Copyright 2009 Monte Carlo Daily Photo. All rights reserved

As well as sailing yachts and tall ships, we can enjoy displays of beautiful old cars and bikes and even Bleriot's airplane - all displayed against backdrops of massively enlarged old photographs. Don't you just love the bathers.(click either photo to enlarge)

Tomorrow - do come back and see what car this is - maybe an enthusiast knows already?

It's hard to believe they could stay afloat.

I noticed the same guy Sharon pointed out. What a pose!

This is great, Jilly. Love it.

Like the old photo. Wonder if our digital pics would be able to be blown up that size without turning into pixels.
Difficult to guess the car exactly, but I would guess a Daimler or a De Dion Bouton

Oh Jilly,
I LOVE the bathers. These old photos are just the best. I wish I could be there and inspect each one closely.

The bathers! So glad you cropped your own shot to show us this photo.

The more you look at it, the more odd details come to attention. Amazing!
