A sun bath, 1920

For much of the 20th century, a fashion for tanned skin and a belief in the benefits of sunshine encouraged New Zealanders to sit or lie on the beach in the sun, exposing much of their bodies. Here Nancy and Clyde Adkin, children of the photographer, George Leslie Adkin, sit naked on a blanket at Plimmerton Beach.
