August 1882 Tintype Photo of Martha's Vineyard Bathing "Beauties" & Cousin It

An exceptional tintype showing a day of leisure with an animated group of Martha's Vineyards sun bathers. Some of the ladies are not very attractive and would likely be safe in a Mexican men's prison. The lady to the far left has brought along her date "Cousin It" to enjoy the festivities. In addition check out the burly lass relaxing on the rock leaning her elbow on the shoe of the one legged man, indeed a peeping Tom would throw up on her window sill. On the foreground you have Dick Van Dyke in the straw hat making moves to the only decent looking lady on the rock.

The image is dated August of 1882 and has excellent tonality for an early large format outdoor tintype.
