I guess women always liked a, er, woman in uniform. Such a sweet scene, guessing 1920's or earlier.

Looks like they're fishing, know what I mean, wink wink, nudge, nudge?

Hmmm... fishing as an excuse to get alone. Reminds me of Brokeback Mountain.

As the old song says:
"All the Nice Girls Love a Sailor

All the nice girls love a sailor,
All the nice girls love a tar;
For there's something about a sailor --
Well, you know what sailors are!

Bright and breezy, free and easy,
He's the ladies' pride and joy.
Falls in love with Kate and Jane,
Then he's off to sea again --

Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!"

Which was actually sung by Hetty King (4 Apr, 1883 — 28 Sep, 1972), who began appearing in English music halls in 1905, as a male impersonator. Plus ca change, eh? More can be found here:
