This vintage real photo postcard is part of a series of cards capturing portraits of contestants in the Miss Europa (Europe)  contest. This beauty pageant includes only European contestants. The contest was established by a French journalist in 1927. The first contest was held at the Paris Opera and 18 countries were represented. The winner in 1927 was from Yugoslavia. The latest winner (2019), is from Spain. Most of the women in this contest won their own country’s national beauty contest, and used the Miss Europa contest as a warm-up for the Miss World pageant. This postcard features Miss Italy and Miss Belgium enjoying the outdoors. They are dressed beautifully and are expert smilers. This postcard was published by well known and acclaimed photographer, Alfred Noyer. His Paris studio operated between 1910 and the 1940’s. This postcard is a product of the 1930’s.    (SOLD)
