“in 1921, early suffragettes often donned a bathing suit and ate pizza in large groups to annoy men…it was a custom at the time”
oh tumblr journalism
this pic is most definitely NOT of early american suffragettes if it was taken in 1921— women in the united states had the right to vote by 1920 with the 19th amendment, so early suffragettes would’ve been some… 70 years earlier when bathing “costumes” were basically a knee-length dress with pants underneath.
it’s still a lovely picture of course— i just think that kind of false narrative devalues the actual story of what these women were up to. a quick google shows this picture is actually of a pie-eating contest in washington DC— in the back row of women you can see the blurry image of iola swinnerton, third from the right with the wrap on her head, who is in photos all over the internet from beach beauty contests in washington in the 1920s. there’s not much written information on iola but something about these pictures of her and other girls just hanging out on a beach nearly a century ago is so fascinating to me. they seem real in a way that is somehow surprising to me.

this isn’t so much a mix as it is a collection of my favourite songs from hemlock grove. the soundtrack is one of the genuinely good things about the show and all credit goes to the fantastic liza richardson, who used some wonderfully weird canadian indie to create a very specific musical voice for the series.
