Photos: Vintage L.A. Bathing Beauties

Today on Giving Tuesday, LAist needs your support.
Today, your donation to LAist will be matched dollar for dollar. Your tax-deductible that gift powers our reporters and keeps us independent will be felt twice as strong today, so don't delay!

Let's take a trip back in time to look at some vintage bathing beauties caught on camera by the pools and shores of Los Angeles once upon a time. Models, starlets, beauty contestants, and regular gals, equipped with all kinds of accessories (a bear cub, an accordion, guns, a baby, a violin) these lovely ladies represent hot days in L.A. from years gone by. Enjoy!
