"When the Heart is young"To celebrate the week of International Women's Day here is a group of women in their best dresses enjoying a day on the beach. It looks breezy, not unusual on the coast of Britain. I like the discarded boots on the right, caps and hats of course were de rigueur in the early 20th Century. The card was sent from Blackpool, on the north west coast of England on 23 August 1909. A popular destination for holidays at this time from the north of England and Scotland (especially Glasgow). I wonder where this group are from, they look as though you could have a fun time with them.
It is interesting to reflect that at this time women did not have the life choices we have today nor have the vote. In Britain it would take to 1928 before all women gained the same voting rights as men. The United Nations theme for women this year is 'Equal access to education, training and science and technology".
