• Short Summary

    Gorgeous girls parade in swimsuits for the title of Miss Toronto 1938.

  • Description

    Toronto, Canada.

    Various shots of a beauty contest - could be beside an open-air swimming pool - looks like it is at an amusement park. Gorgeous girls (most of them!) parade in swimsuits, carrying parasols and cards displaying their numbers. A large crowd watches from a spectator stand. The girl who wins the title of 'Miss Toronto 1938' is Dianne Perkin, a cute brunette. She poses with the Mayor and is given a bouquet of flowers. The runners up join Dianne and the Mayor to pose for pictures.

    "Dianne Perkin" should read Dianne Perkins.

    "She poses with the Mayor" - the mayor seen here is Mayor Ralph C Day.
