This crazy crowd is doing everything under the sun; tanning, chatting, eating, splashing, swimming, ogling, and having a general good ol' time. New Yorker cover from July 8, 1939 by Richard Taylor. The covers of The New Yorker have entertained and enlightened the magazine's readers for nearly a century. With unmatched visual sophistication and wit, they let no subject escape their scrutiny.
