Thai Beauty Queen from 1934

Beauty Queen - October 1, 2005
John writes: You posted an old BW photo of a young girl from the 1920s or 1930s (below) and asked who it is. I thought I recognized her, and sure enough, I found her in my collection of old cigarette cards. She was featured in Beauty Queen Series, Serial No. 4, inscribed on the back as follows: "Miss Lampang II was awarded second prize at the Beauty Contest held at Lampang in the year 1934." (left) Unfortunately no name.

Something about the cigarette card series: "2C. Issues 1919-40 Set ZB5-9. Titled "Beauty Queen Series". Oval shape, 66 x 38. Brown. Front and back illustrated at Fig. ZB5-9. Nd. (16). Issued in Siam in 1935"

Earlier: Who is this? - July 30, 2005
We love this undated photo (right)--probably from the 1920s or 1930s, of a young Thai beauty...

Below: Another card from the series: "Miss Chiengmai I was awarded first prize at the Beauty Contest held at Chiengmai in the year 1934"
