Miss Universe Contestants Visit Disneyland
In the 1950s and 1960's, the Miss Universe contest was held in Long Beach, California. One of the many trips the contestants made during the week prior to the contest was to Disneyland. I am guessing these photographs were taken in 1961 or 1962. The poses are very unusual but fun with the girls lifting Mickey, a photograph of a photographer and the Big Bad Wolf holding up a contestant. I believe that several holes in the ozone layer were created by the hair spray for the bouffant hair dos seen on the contestants.
