TBT Redondo Beach

Times have really changed in Redondo Beach and the world in general.

The Policeman in this photo, Chuck Peyton, checks to see if the old-fashioned bathing suit worn by actress Myrna Ross complies with 1933 Redondo Beach ordinance banning women’s suits that are more than 3 inches above the knee.

The city attorney warned enforcement may be necessary if topless suits appear on beaches. Male swimmers would also be required to wear more discreet attire.
