Naked yorkshire girls
Reasons for this Blog Article Why would I even be interested in responding to the issue of naked swimming in the schools in the old days with a blog article? First, here was a practice most men experienced as recently as fifty years ago, and is a living memory for many of us, and people don’t know about it.
Some even deny it happened because it doesn’t fit our current cultural mores.
Many men over 50 testify that they swam naked in high school and college. But it was the practice and there are some pictures to prove it.
This photo of a swimming class at New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois appeared in photo archive website.
But it reminds me of what I experienced at Bennett High School in Buffalo during my freshman year (1957-58).
Among other changes, our tour guide at Bennett pointed out that the diving boards had been removed from the pool because of a fatal diving accident.
Maybe it was because in swimming we shed those school-issued shorts that accentuated skinny legs.
Our society today tends to have crazy attitudes toward the body.
The body is glamorized in the media (using impossible models for the rest of us) and this in turn leads to issues of body shame (sometimes producing eating disorders).
I recently attended a reunion of the class of 1961 of Bennett High School in Buffalo, NY.
As part of the weekend events we were given a tour of our high school to see what had changed and what remained the same.
