Americans have long had a love affair with the beach. That’s clear from a new web site, LIFE.com. Its collection of photos include seven million images from the archives of the storied magazine, which is affiliated with Coastal Living.
On its home page today, it features a slide show of folks having fun at the shore. From blanket tosses to sunbathing to cuddling on the sand, you’re sure to enjoy this nostalgic journey.
The shot above was taken at Hermosa Beach, California, in 1948, by photographer John Florea. Readers can get a 15 percent discount on this framed print and thousands more. Just enter LIFECL at checkout.
