Description
Crowds of people enjoy a warm summer day at this unidentified beach in Southern California. View shows a group of young women walking along the beach, while others enjoy playing in the cool ocean water, and more are sitting on the sand. While 95% of these beachgoers are wearing bathing suits, several of those sitting on the sand can be seen wearing their "Sunday best" - long dresses, suits, and hats.
