Library of Congress : Vintage Swimming


The very lovely John Coulthart just sent me the above photo that he found in the Library of Congress online image archive - one of the best sources of public domain imagery on the internet - and it reminded me that I hadn't been for a good poke around there for a while. So thanks to John's good offices, I have discovered the images below, which appear to be photos of competitive swimmers including one Johnny Weissmuller who was, of course, before he was ever swinging through the trees, an Olympic medalist and world record holding swimmer. And I will resist all jokes about creepers and vines...
