Postally used real photo postcard (1914 cancel) entitled (in image) "Bathing Beach, Saugatuck, Mich." taken by C. R. Childs of Chicago. The view pictures a number of men and women at the beach, including an old camera on a tripod. It looks as if one of the women wading in the water is holding a fairly large scantily clad child (possibly a cripple?). Writing on the back is from "Arthur and Louise" who give a description of the beach and water temps., and say they can be written to at the address of William Turnball. Other then a tiny stain bottom left edge, card is in very good condition. Buyer pays $1.25 shipping in the U.S.
