Title: Beauty Parade

Various shots document a beauty contest on a sunny day at Tynemouth open air pool on Longsands seafront. Women contestants in swimsuits and high heels sport numbers on their wrists and parade around the pool, stopping to pose for crowds. A man in a nautical hat supervises at the poolside. An audience watches from the stepped concrete seating beside the pool. The competitors line up in a row to pose, then continue around the pool.
