As we get ready to say goodbye to August, we’re having a little #ThrowbackThursday to summers past.
This negative image of a woman walking on a beach was probably taken around 1930 in either Ventnor, New Jersey, or Rehoboth, Delaware by Frank E. Schoonover (1877-1972). Schoonover, a prolific commercial illustrator and artist, was also an avid photographer whose many photographs were frequently taken for use as source material for his artwork.
