Tel Aviv's Female Fashion

Nothing has changed in 70 years:

There did not appear to be much poverty in Tel-aviv itself and most people walked around very smartly dressed and some very smartly undressed. It was nothing out of the ordinary to see women strolling along the main streets in very pretty two-piece suits, while on the beach itself everything between 9 and 90 appeared to enjoy the habit of sunbathing — old women and two year olds plus all the young belles of Tel-aviv. Quite a place...

That was from a letter by Corporal Allan Stoddart home on 29 July 1944.
