Friday Follies: Hit the Beach, 1928 Style

As expected, it’s definitely beach weather in Houston these last days before the start of fall semester. What I didn’t expect was H.A. Wilson and in his swimwear, grinning happily on the beach in Galveston in 1928. Somehow Tsanoff seems less surprising:

Those are the combined Tsanoff and Wilson clans taking in some sun.

Bonus: From loyal reader Bill Peebles, this image from the 1967 Campanile. Clearly not the same gun as in the 1942 picture. Thanks, Bill!

  1. There are two guns in the 1942 picture. I think this may be one of them — the one on the far left.

  2. Ronald Rye Ladd says:

    The one on the far right, based on the 6 continuous windows in the wall behind the gun. The guns on the left only have sets of 4 and 2 windows behind it.
