THERE SHE IS…
Believe it or not, these are all the contestants in the very first Miss America Pageant back in 1921!!! The winner, Margaret Gorman from Washington DC, is the 3rd from the left (in the pirate hat). Notice these are their competition swimsuits… Yes, this is what they were wearing when the judges made their decision – LOL!
Also, it’s always good to know that even back in 1921, some ladies had trouble remembering to always stand with “pretty feet.” 🙂
Here are a few additional photos of Margaret Gorman, Miss America 1921…
Here’s Margaret Gorman, alongside Miss America 1922, Mary Katherine Campbell! Mary Katherine also defended her title in 1923 and is the only woman to have won the Miss America title TWICE!
THOUSANDS of people showed up to watch the very first “Atlantic City Pageant” in Atlantic City, New Jersey!!!!
More photos coming up after our next podcast is released on Thursday… Stay Tuned!!!
