Everybody’s Free To Wear Sunscreen

Spur mag, Sept 1932
Spur mag, Sept 1932

I apologize if it is still wintry in your neck of the woods. Here it’s been in the 80s. Birds are chirping incessantly, lawns are demanding weekly mowings, the air has the bitter stench of weed-killer in it, the neighborhood pool opens manana, and swarms of bees root around in our holly bush, two paces from our front door. I HATE bees. And wasps. Our Martha Stewart six chair patio set is ready for guests. All we need is a recliner, like these ladies seem to be enjoying.

Considering it was 1932, smack dab in the middle of The Depression, they seem to be fairing pretty well. Methinks Ms. Ira F. Warner  from Westhampton, Long Island looks rather cheeky.



    • The men were playing “how to hold coffee mugs” near a gameboard, and the middle lady is obviously texting, and the last lady is reading, “How To Wear A Floppy Hat Like A Boss Now That You’re Free To Vote.”
