Swim Instructor from Life Magazine

I love this old photo from 1898 of a swim instructor on Staten Island, New York.

If I wasn't already married, I would totally get a similar shirt that says “Kayak Instructor” on it so I can sashay down the beach showing off to the ladies with my big belt and center part hair.

Yep, it would totally going to work.

PS - If you have a better instructor pick-up line, post it below. I'm pretty sure you can do better since I have been off the market for 11 years.
