  • Description

    Visnews cameras filmed the final stage of the "Miss Holland" contest in Amsterdam May 5 when the judges had before them 16 of the Netherlands's most beautiful young women -- mostly mannequins, models or shorthand typists by profession.

    Miss Peggy Erwich, a 21-year-old brunette from Rotterdam, was chosen as "Miss Holland, 1959" and as Holland's representative in the "Miss Europe" beauty contest to be held later this year in Palerno or Beirut.

    Miss Erwich's "ideal" height -- 1.75 metres or approximately 5ft.8 1/4 ins. -- was an important factor in her success.
