I have some more lovely photos from the Miss Newport pageant--except this time from 1948 when Beverly Jean Duncan won the title.
I must say, I'm not as excited by the 1948 swimsuits as I was by the ones from 1947 (they are a bit too shiny for my taste--look more like foundational garments then swimsuits)...what do you think?
I do love these photos of Beverly Jean on the beach:
And this photo in front of the Yaquina Bay Bridge:
And here is a photo of the Miss Newport delegation for 1948 (lots of culotte shorts):
