ART EVERY DAY NUMBER 52 / drawing / illustration / the swim cap

Art every day number 52 is about taking a stylish dip into the depths of your local pool. 

"...during the early 20th century [swim caps were made of rubberized fabric] . By the 1920s they were made of latex. The earliest chin strap caps were known as "aviator's style caps" as they resembled the strapped leather helmets of flyers of the day. 

During the 1940s swim caps became scarce as rubber was needed for war materials. It was a lucky girl who had a swim cap to protect her "wave" (hair style) during that period..." - Wikipedia
