indecent exposure

LIFE photographer Sam Shere captured these rather amusing photos of women and men who give zero fucks while being ticketed for “indecent exposure.” The images were taken at Rockaway Beach, New York in 1946.

It’s funny now to think what was considered “indecent” beachwear back in 1946. I dig the photo of the woman smoking the cigarette with not a care in the world. And why should she have, anyway?

It appears cops in uniforms were doing the ticketing as well as plainclothes police officers.


More after the jump…
