Walking is the best way for anyone to get around the beach! Here we have a joyful group of 12 people doing just that. Iris Smith, Gertie Sebate, and Ellen Smith are some of the participants of this lively bunch. The women are especially excited as they were liberated from the lengthy, heavy bathing suits of days gone by.
The rage was to wear the bright RED swim suits designed by Jantzen, who still makes swimming suits today.

Unfortunately, on its return flight one month later, the plane crashed in Crowley, Louisiana and killed its pilot, Lt. William Devoe Coney.

“Each painting in this series has the color RED, as RED is the color of Love; it is through love that we experience the best in life.
And those are the moments we cherish forever.”

The SS Chatham was built in 1884. It was a stunning RED and black American passenger/cargo steamer weighing 2,729 tons and was 285 ft long. It was sold to the government in 1898 and converted to the US Navy's first Repair Ship under the name of the "USS Vulcan". The ship served in Cuban waters during the Spanish-American War repairing 63 ships. It was decommissioned in 1899 and sold back to its original owners and converted back to the SS Chatham. On the morning of January 4th, 1910 when on route from Baltimore, Maryland to Jacksonville, Fl, she struck the north jetty at the entrance of the St Johns River. The collision resulted in the steamer sinking within a few minutes. Amazing that a camera was able to record this actual event; that is why I wanted to paint it

By Ellen Jones www.Joypeace3art.com

The neighborhood kids liked to ride their hot dawg RED bicycles to church for social activities as it
was an affordable and convenient means of transportation for them. The First Baptist Church
was located on Mundy and 3rd St from 1922 - 1944.
In 1934, the church outgrew their existing facility,
but didn't want to leave the neighborhood.
They increase their size by raising
the building and constructing a second floor
underneath the original structure.
