Most of us remember our grandmothers as women of age, wearing modest dresses and scolding their granddaughters for too revealing outfits. But once grandmothers were young too, and they used to rock racy swimsuits on the shores of rivers, lakes and oceans, flaunt their chiseled legs and wasp waist. And it's a real pleasure to look at these vintage photos.
