Palais De Danse Bathing Beauty Contest

About this scrapbook

During the war years, The Palais De Danse ran many events for the social enjoyment of all, the dancing and fun helping to lighten the mood of the generation facing WWII at the time. One of the events that were popular were the Bathing Beauty Contests, which gave women a chance to enjoy their femininity, despite there being rationing and tough times to contend with. These are photos in which my Mother took part in one of the contests.
