Bathing trunks with modesty skirt

Roslyn was one of many labels made by Dunedin manufacturers, Ross & Glendining. Roslyn swimwear usually featured a badge featuring a swimming lady and a pair of wings. The badge on this bathing suit is different – the swimming lady has been replaced by the letter R.
