    Oh..Sailor boy and Sailor girl..

     
    I took a lot of images at the Coney Island Mermaid Parade, as I was stranded there from early in the morning until late at night..
    I saw some sailor boys and girls but these two in the first image really struck me. They were hanging out on the boardwalk later, and image two was getting a Nathan's order.
    The third image, in sailorette gear was the lead in for Rita Menworth, last year's crowned mermaid.
    I did some research and sailor boy and girl images, culture, go way back to the 1920's and 30's. Oh,what fun we can have..
    Thank you.
