EDITORS COMMENTS
Annette Kellerman: A Trailblazing Australian Swimmer, Actress, and Writer This black-and-white photograph showcases Annette Kellerman, an extraordinary Australian woman who defied societal norms and left an indelible mark on history. Born in 1886, Kellerman was a pioneering swimmer, film star, and writer, best known for her advocacy of the one-piece bathing suit and her groundbreaking stage performances. Pictured here in 1913, Annette Kellerman is seen both on and off stage during her appearance in "The Wood Nymphs" at the prestigious Alhambra Theatre. Her stage costume, designed to accentuate her slim and athletic figure, caused quite a stir at the time, as the one-piece bathing suit was still considered a controversial fashion choice for women. Born in the small town of Tasmania, Annette Kellerman began her career as a swimmer, setting numerous records and breaking gender barriers. Her athletic prowess and striking appearance soon caught the attention of the entertainment industry, and she transitioned into acting. Kellerman's film career included roles in silent films, such as "The Mermaid" and "The Virtuous Sinner," which further solidified her status as a sex symbol and a trailblazer for women's rights. In addition to her successful acting and swimming careers, Annette Kellerman was also an accomplished writer. She authored several books, including "Annette Kellerman's Swimming and Physical Training," which became a best-seller and helped popularize the one-piece bathing suit. This photograph is a testament to Annette Kellerman's enduring legacy as a pioneering Australian woman who defied societal expectations and paved the way for future generations. Her boldness and determination continue to inspire us today.
