Image of the Week
This glorious summer is rolling on, and we felt an urge to revisit happy times on the beach some 60 years ago. This picture was taken on the Coney Island beach by Irving Hoffman. We don't have an exact date, but it is estimated to be from the 1950s. Take that, yogis and yoginis of 2010s.
