Peep these Panoramic Prints: Bathing Girls of the 1920s

I found these incredible panoramic photographs from the roaring twenties which are just fascinating to observe close up, girl by girl, one bizarre bathing costume after another. Even better, these prints are available to buy in formats as large as 44″ x 227″. How amazing would these be in an entrance hallway?!
