Text on back:

No. 57. ON THE BEACH AT THE BATH HOUSE.

In European ocean resorts, where the water is very shallow near the beach, people undress in little houses on wheels, which are drawn out into deep water by horses and hauled back to the shore, when the bath is finished. At the larger resorts hundreds of these carts are seen in the water at a time. The ladies in the picture are enjoying a sunbath while waiting for the driver and his horse to take them out, and the man, a mean old bachelor, is taking in the sights.
