Sideburns and Swimsuits

I can tell that summer is here. I wrote a Friday blog that I forgot to post and all weekend, our email was down. So, I am late posting the blog this morning. However…

It’s Monday and we are full steam into the steam! So, I thought I would give you some history… of the sideburn and the swimsuit. It reminded me (ok… google reminded me when I did a search) of Greek Philosopher Heraclitus who said that, “The only thing that is constant is change!”

Which leads me to our first historical part of the blog that combines a bit of war, leadership… and a horrible hairstyle look!

First we have Civil War General Ambrose Burnside. He coined the phrase sideburn. Wow!

Which leads us to controversy in history. This is Annette Kellerman in 1907, who was arrested for indecency after showing up at the beach with this fitted one-piece bathing suit.

Yes… laws have changed.
