Vintage Swimwear Madness
I don't own this photo, nor did I bid on it. It seems at the moment that the whole vintage swimwear thing is really going some on Ebay. If you have the right photo, like this one, with plenty of bulge and a few good looking young guys, you can really be in the money. The original of this one just sold for 150 GBP!! And this is not the first vintage swimwear photo that I've seen go for silly money in recent months... I do hope this blog hasn't had anything to do with the rise in popularity...!
I am a bookcollector, bookdealer, publisher and writer living in Portsmouth on the South Coast of the UK.
This blog is my personal space for the recording of my numerous interests including science-fiction, victorian and vintage photography, gay literature, book design, typography, homoerotic artwork, the Amazon river, the books of Frederick Rolfe (Baron Corvo), Forrest Reid, sundry gay Victorian and Edwardian characters, Slash Fiction, Samuel R Delany, Vintage swimwear, Willard Price, Venice, and so on...
Alongside all of that you also get a personal journal of life and memoir and the self-therapy you have come to know and love from bloggers.
