Archival Holiday: Coney Island 1885

Since I'll be landlocked over the holiday weekend, I'm going to substitute these seaside images (courtesy the Brooklyn Musuem flickr photostream) as placeholders for my archival jaunt to Coney Island. As someone who loves warm weather but loathes summer apparel, I admire the way the folks in these photos maintain a high standard of dress (jackets, vests, caps) in such close proximity to sun, sand and water.
