Studio photo of a beach scene: two girls playing on the beach, with the sea and sailboats in the background. In the early 20th century, the rise of beach and coastal recreation resulted in the proliferation of postcards with images of people swimming and children playing in the sand. These photographs were taken inside studios with maritime decorations.

They were generally black-and-white photographs, coloured to make them look happier and more lively.
