Participants of a "Miss Lovely Eyes" contest held in Florida, 1930.
Oh dear sweet Florida, when it comes to the bizarre, you never disappoint. Although, there was once a time when there was a ridiculous pageant for just about everything across the nation. Whether it was her beauty, posture, ankles, feet… women would line up to be judged by complete strangers for every part or talent you can think of. Pictured here are the participants of a "Miss Lovely Eyes" contest held in Florida, back in 1930. What better way to judge a woman's eyes than to make the rest of her look as creepy as possible, right?
