Whatever you’re doing today, please try to exercise better judgment than this:
Rice boys, late ’40s, at Galveston, apparently wearing their grandmothers swimsuits. I can’t help but notice that some of them look better than others–the guy second from right is kind of pulling it off. Also, there may be beer involved.
The guy second from left appears to be wielding a plunger. I don’t think I want to know why.
Yeah, I wasn’t going to mention that.
Beer is definitely involved. Those are all what are called crowntainers, which were a form of beer can made from about 1939 to the 1950s.
Looks like they might be holding cans of “Southern Select” beer, which was made in Galveston at the time: http://www.ebay.com/itm/All-3-Southern-Select-Beer-Cone-Top-crowntainers-Galveston-Houston-Brewery-Texas-/121088986435
For $560.00 I’m going to start digging in the in-laws barn!
The days of the Open Beaches.
The Beaches belong to “the people of Texas”.
So much for that theory.
