At the beach in San Malo

At the beach in San Malo

Check out Julia Child’s flash get-up outside her family’s beach house in San Malo, CA, in the late-1920s. An amateur actress, she loved costumes and dress-up, which runs counter to her beloved TV image. Ever notice that she seemed to wear the same frumpy blouse and skirt throughout her two decades on TV? In Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child, published on August 8th, you get a rare and unexpected picture of Julia, who was more image-conscious than most people realize.

    I’m reading “Dearie” right now — and rushing to Google a lot of things as I go. San Malo was one and I got to see this terrific picture.

    I am loving this book so far. And yes I had to Google San Malo too.
