The poster features a woman winning a beauty contest (black and white photograph with a manipulated yellow sash) placed next
to a larger photograph of various women wearing bathing suits and standing in a row, as if they are competing in a beauty
contest. There is a long passage of text that begins with, "The event began with the introduction of each..." The text (in
larger type) at bottom of the image reads, "Chinatown Livestock Show!!"
