Swimmers enjoy a dip in the pool that used to be located in Waterworks Park in Delphos. Notice the style of swim-suits. (Submitted photo)
As the weather warms, we start tothink of what to wear to the pool, lakeor ocean. Swimming and swimwearhave changed with the times althoughnot in the sequence you might expect.Cavemen swam but probably not somuch as a leisure activity than as ameans of getting somewhere or as a partof bathing. At times through the years,learning to swim was promoted moreto save a life than as a leisure activity.During the great flood of 1913, manypeople drowned because they couldn’tswim. Swimming was also a genderseparate activity – men and women ondifferent beaches.Swimsuits were originally bathinggowns for women and long underwearfor men. Modesty and protection fromthe sun prevented bathing suits fromshowing any skin. The suits were madeof wool and worn with woolen stock-ings and thus, very heavy when wet. Asswimming became more popular, theswimsuit slowly evolved. Lighter mate-rials were used and the stockings disap-peared. Then the arms were uncovered,the pants were shortened, necklinesplunged and backs were bared until thesuit reached the point of as little cover-age as possible.The Delphos Canal Museum has aswimsuit from those early years donatedby a daring relative of the owner. Youwill find many interesting articles of clothing from yesteryear on a visit to theDelphos Canal Museum.Hours are 9 a.m. to noon on Thursdaysand 1-3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
