Had to google around to figure out why they were smearing themselves with grease. It's some petroleum oil (I bet it smelled great too) to protect them from frigid waters. Smeared or not, these 1920s athletes are stunning.

Good for you, Gloria ... I wouldn't have minded doing a little googling around with them myself.

(Unfortunately, these guys would be about 120 years old by now ...)

Despite the obvious question it raises (if it's that cold outside, why bother swimming in the first place?!), this is a delightful photograph... Thanks for sharing!
