"Did you know there’s a naturist beach there as well? Where clothing is optional?"
Hanlan's Point Toronto Islands
If you think of the Victorians as being excessively prudish, you may be astonished to discover that there was a nudist beach - popularly known as "Bare-assed Beach" - at Hanlan’s Point on the Toronto Islands from 1894 to 1930, when morally upright citizens finally succeeded in shutting it down. This photo, showing the Hanlan Hotel in the background, was obviously not taken at the nudist beach!
