Where did you find these? Very rare stuff. Thanks for posting. Have you ever seen anything about CC judging a beauty contest up in NY during this period? Maybe you've already posted something on it?
They were posted on ebay many years ago and I saved the images. Is this the photo from the beauty contest?http://www.discoveringchaplin.com/2013/03/charlie-with-eugenia-gilbert-winner-of.html
No, but that one's cool, too. The one I'm talking about was in upstate NY in 1927. Gosh, I wonder where I stowed that reference? I'll have to think about it!
Now I'm very intrigued!
