Wartime Beauties
undated, uncredited photo

A bevy of Honolulu bathing beauties vie for a USO-sponsored beauty crown early in the war. Diamond Head is clearly visible in the right background. There's no shortage of smiling sailors and soldiers in the crowd at right, and a row of GIs is even perched on the roof of the building in the background.
