Miss America

A long article on Margaret Gorman and the pageant here.

[And we'll forgive New Jersey Monthly for misspelling "ukulele" in the very first sentence! - Dave]

Gotta make a buck!

An enterprising photographer who probably had them lined up waiting for a photo ... then work all night and delivered prints the next day!

[National Photo was a news service. The event was the Washington Kennel Club dog show at the Riding and Hunt Club. - Dave]

Dog Show

What was going on that day in April 1925 with those dogs and pretty girls? Same date, same chair, same location as Mae Esterly with Sgt. Jiggs.


Now I ask you very confidentially: Ain't she sweet? Ab-so-lute-ly and how! Thanks for sharing. Woof!

Two great subjects!

Beautiful girl, gorgeous dog, GREAT outfit...any nation would be proud to have this young lady as their representative!

What a gorgeous gal. Lovely gamine demeanor and legs up to here! Love the gloves, coat and hat, too.
