Pioneer Swim Suits

Swim suits in Brigham Young's day consisted of overalls for the boys and linsey woolsey dresses for the girls. The dresses were made out of heavy cotton and wool with pantaloons under the dresses.
Brigham used to take his kids out to the Great Salt Lake swimming. There is a big black rock out there and the boys used to change on one side and the girls on the other.

Try swimming in salt water in the heavy bathing suits they wore--quite an experience.
