victorianbathingPopular presenter Laura Loew of Lost in the Past returns to the Kent Free Library on Sunday, May 15 at 2:00 with a new program about Victorians and their fascination with the beach.

In the 1800s, Victorians took to the waters with abandon at seaside resorts. Loew will describe those golden days of ‘bathing’ and promenading and will display antique bathing suits, seaside souvenirs, and other beach accessories from her collection.

Loew’s fun and informative program is free and open to all ages. Spaces are limited and registration is required by contacting the Information Desk at 330.673.4414.
