    Shows a woman strolling on a sea-side promenade. She wears a veil and a large hat to conceal a pimpled face. The caption indicates that she had gone to the sea-side believing that the sun and sea-air would be good for her health, but now her complexion has been 'completely spoiled the very morning before the monthly ball'.
