Miss Welder

Between 1951 and 1954, the National Eutectic Welders' Club annually awarded the title of "Miss Welder". The winner was supposed to represent the "girl we would most like to weld with." The club also expressed its hope that Miss Welder would "inspire women throughout the nation to join the ranks of the labor force so vitally needed for America's defense effort."

The winners included some well-known names. In particular, Sophia Loren (1954). Missing from the list below is Miss Welder of 1953, Barbara Nichols, for whom I couldn't find an image.

1951: Dagmar

1952: Denise Darcel

1954: Sophia Loren

Sophia's tag is spelled "Miss Weldor".

Virtual, I don't think that's what you were supposed to be looking at.
