When I was compiling shots for the ‘camping inspired’ post last week, I came across this image from the The Golden Book of Camping published in 1959, which I’ve inexplicably fallen in love with… How fantastic is the illustration, and dare I say not suitable for print by todays standards. Somehow telling children to strip down to their underwear and to ‘grab the other fellow’s bag’ in the water probably isn’t the first motto for the scouts anymore… what a shame.
