  1. I remember when they used to come along the beach and MEASURE the sides of our bikinis in the `60’s. From memory they had to be 2″ wide – could be wrong, it could have been even wider!! We used to tie the sides to make them smaller and untie them when the `patrol’ used to come along!! They used to make people leave the beach if they didn’t comply.

  2. what amazes me is how beach inspectors got to play ‘moral guardian’ and man-handle all that skimpy swimwear…how did they get away with that?
