Beauty queens from Sheffield

Recommended Posts

Sheffield seemed to produce quite a few beauty queens in the 50s/60s. Who remembers Delyse Humpheries, Christine Owen and I think Johnny Fanthams wife Carole won one of the beauty titles? Does anyone remember?

Another from the late 60s was Helen Caunt.

I think Pamela Wood was a daughter of Syd Wood of 'Syd's Coaches' from Rotherham.

I used to go out with Sandra Brown/French  who was miss Rotherham and came second to June Cooper in the Miss GB title June was wearing Sandra's costume so they had a fall out,I was sat with her at a funeral wake a couple of years ago and she lives down London now.Pam

 Wood used to work in Debenhams down the Moor,ive not seen Delyse for years but she had the model agency down Heeley,Victoria De Quincy was another one i used to see a  few of them when Sandra did the catwalks she now lives down Cornwall.Johnny Fanthoms wife was Carol Ardron before he married her I used to fix cars he used to buy in the 70s. June Cooper lived in the Railway cottages at Kiveton Park my wife knew her well. Sandra won the prestigious Miss She competition at Butlins in 1971 Delyese in 1963 and Christine Owen in 1978.
