Summer Holidays Collage Printable

Today's post is all about the many ways we humans might have recreated our summers away in past centuries.
Selected images in the collage set below include camping (shown two ways), sports such as swimming, and a bit of fashionable apparel, among other things.
And what have you done with your summer fun time? Did you find a great read for your enjoyment? Or did you, perhaps, add to your art skills? Were you able to get out more often? And when you were, where did you stay?
My favorite images below would have to be the woman in her corseted "bathing costume" descending the steps to her "bathing engine," and the deluxe camper car--altho' sleeping outdoors would be preferable to breathing oil and gas fumes all night long! ;)
Hope you're enjoying what's left of the summertime fun!
