Them girls are beauty contestants circa 1937. The depression was raging. War had started in Europe. A bevy of beauties stand resplendent in the pleasure a teen woman feels in being the center of attention. For a few hours she is princess of the realm.
I've seen pictures taken of young women at the height of joy and beauty as they transition from childhood to adulthood. The perfection of beauty in youth picked and discarded usually by the person by real or imagined flaws.
There's the words above one woman, "The winner" and clearly she is the prettiest. The evil witch in Snow White must be rolling in her grave.
