And This Year's Golden Cup Goes To.....


Emily Swanson of New Haven, CT won this year's Golden Cup for the Long Island Sound "Miss Swimsuit" Competition with her form fitting two-piece and coordinating socks. The judges claimed it was a difficult decision to make, but their deciding factor was based on the assumption that Miss Swanson's swimsuit would be least likely to cause drowning. Betty Mulson of Brooklyn, NY was awarded the Silver Cup for second place. Henrietta Stillhouse of Bridgeport, CT took home the coveted third place award of a floral parasol, while Marge Wilson of Stony Brook, NY won tickets to see the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall for fourth place.

Now that's what I call "bathing beauties".

I'm puzzling over whether this is a genuine old snap from the 1920's or thereabouts, or a modern mockup/reproduction?

I think that third girl stole my swimsuit and my award what with my fair skin and all.

That is a great picture. But I can only imagine what the women in the photo looked like AFTER then went swimming :-)

It is rumored that Emily may have to return her cup as a shocking photo of her baring her midriff has recently showed up on the Internet. What is this world coming to?

Bearman said...

Golden cup? I am still trying to figure out the whole two girls and a cup thing.

where did you find that picture? i just might have to borrow it!

yorksnbeans said...

Nons...I googled "Vintage Bathing Suit Images". This one is on about page 5. If you can't find it, can't you just steal it from here?

Bear...two girls and a cup?? Please explain.

TL...That certainly wouldn't surprise me, considering the slutty swimsuit she chose to wear for the competition. Of course she won! More than likely the judges were all men.

JJ...they probably looked like drowned rats! :-)

Dave...my guess is that it's genuine.

Matty...if you say so! :-)
