Cape, Stick, Vanity in Beach Umbrella, 1939

This post was originally published on this site

Besides shielding its user from the sun, a versatile new beach umbrella can be used as a walking stick, a vanity case, or part of a bathing costume.

The detachable fabric top may be worn over a bathing suit as a cape, or will serve as a skirt. The rest of the umbrella folds within a lightweight metal tube, forming a staff to aid in walking over the sand.
Flipping open the lid of an oblong cap, at the end where the umbrella ribs converge, reveals a small mirror and make-up in handy form to be applied after a dip.
