I don't care about Miss America.  I could give a damn about Miss Universe.  What I wanna see is Miss Magnolia State, or even better: Miss Pierce County or Miss Wilcox Agricultural Fair.  In this post, we're looking at snapshots of beauty queen contestants and winners from pageants off the beaten path.

The pageantry has been soiled in recent years via scandals, overbearing mothers, reality shows, and twisted toddler exhibitions.  So, we're taking a step back to a time before things got tainted, to places such as Grand Openings and Ground Breaking Ceremonies where there was always a "Miss Something-or-other" in attendance. And I know there's whole sites devoted to these vintage queens - a single post with a handful of photos hardly does the subject justice.  So, let's just say this is the first of many to come. Enjoy.
