Edwardian Beach Style – 1906 Beach Fashion Was Elegant But Stifling

There was a heat wave in 1906 throughout the whole of the British Isles, quite late in the year at the end of August and the early days of September. Edward Linley Sambourne, chief cartoonist at Punch Magazine and keen amateur photographer, was out and about with his concealed camera on the south coast of Britain and the north coast of Belgium. Sambourne photographed people trying to beat the heat at Brighton and Folkestone.
