Punch,  45 (1863), 112.

A New Watering-Place Wanted





Animal Behaviour, Morality, Gender

    Discusses some of the 'anomalies' and contradictions in English customs, notably the English attitudes towards 'bathing at our watering-places', a custom that leads to 'Gorillas on the shore' surveying 'bathing nymphs' in the sea. Wonders whether anybody will 'defend this system of indecency' and urges that bathing be properly supervised.
