By the early 20th century Venice’s economy was so well known to largely depend on tourism, that in 1904 the New York Times described the Lido as the most interesting of summer holiday resorts. Sea bathing was once thought to have curative or therapeutic value. It arose from the medieval practice of visiting spas for the beneficial effects of the waters. The practice of sea bathing dates back to the 17th century but became popular in the late 18th century. The development of the first swimsuits dates from the period as does the development of the bathing machine. The bathing machines remained in active use until the 1890s, when they began to be parked on the beach. They were then used as stationary changing rooms up to now and re-named beach huts. Here you can see that the beach huts, usually three rows of them, were protected by a wall of sand, heaped to prevent the storms to 'eat' most of the beach. The beach is being prepared for the summer tourists in late May. In the background you can see the bulky outline of the Excelsior Hotel.
Sorry for my absence, but, as Flavia said, we were very, very busy.
Thank you for your kind comments.
