Vintage Photographs of Coney Island Beachgoers Show Not Much Has Changed Except the Swim Suits

Nothing quite remedies a hot day like a trip to the beach. Short on options here in the City, beachgoers have sought out the relaxation and adventure that only Coney Island can provide for over centuries. These vintage photographs, ranging in date from 1899 to the 1968, show that although bathing fashions may have changed drastically, almost nothing else has at all!
