Brown & orange paisley print swimsuit

Trish Bartleet is wearing this swimsuit in a photo in December 1973 when she went on a camping trip up north for her honeymoon. "My sister and her family, my brother and his wife and my mother all came along! The caravan ended up with a flat tyre, so while it was being repaired we changed into our togs on the side of the road and went for a swim. Mum was quite a prude so taking a photo of her getting changed was quite a giggle."
