This beautifully restored vintage photograph shows glamorous young women clad in white bathing suits, posing for a photographer in a synchronized swimming routine reenacted on land. Whether they were a part of the actual Aquacade of 1939 World’s Fair is unknown, but these fetching mermaids are doing a swimming job of putting smiles on viewer’s faces. The swimming, dancing and diving extravaganza was remembered by anyone who saw the performance, and there isn’t a show today that would come even close to the spectacle of the Aquacade.
At Vintage Print Gallery, we do our best to offer the most interesting, sophisticated and unique pieces of art to our loyal customers. While many of our offerings come from painstakingly collected antiques, such as hundreds of years old atlases, photo albums and herbariums, we have also gone a step further and now offer remastered pieces, as well as original art. Our original art takes inspiration from our existing catalog and builds on it. Our remastered pieces bring new colorways, sharper images and more intricate details from restored vintage works of art. Additionally, we also offer silver, gold and copper leaf enhanced art, with real metal applied to the prints.
