    Miss America, 1920s by Vlad: I should have added a comment here last night that I'd finally moved this album from Multiply so that everyone would know where I'd uploaded the photos. The research that Vlad put into this and the ref'd ACJ and Miss Amateur Bathing Revue albums is what led to his ID of Margaret Davis and the ACJ photos with the shell trophies. All well before photos with her name were sold on NEA. Another awesome piece of work!

    I put this in a new section for Beauty Contests as there will be other albums for other contests eventually and not all will involve ACJ photos.
