Vintage Black and White Photographs by Bernard Kobel. If you collect Palisades Park ephemera, this may be one of the rarest sets of photos you’ll ever find. What a great group of photos this is!! Back in 1940, there was a WOMEN’S HAIR PULLING CONTEST at Palisades Park, NJ. These fab photos document that wild and crazy event. This is the only set of these images I could find anywhere online. These photos measure 5″ x 7″. Single weight paper, good condition with creases and wrinkles throughout, and original notes on reverse describing and/or identifying them. Despite the wear, these photos all look very nice and I believe it would be impossible to find another group of images documenting this crazy contest! The red “mlr222″ appears only on my scans. The online article I show in my listing is NOT included in this sale. I include it among my images to provide historical perspective on this zany event. It does, in fact, show one of the same images in this sale. Again, you are purchasing the 10 black and white photographs identified as HP1 – HP10. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Photographic Images\Photographs”. The seller is “mlr222″ and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States.
