Show girls 60-years on
By Jessica Howard

It’s been 60 years since the
inception of the first Miss
Show Girl Competition, and
Ballan sisters Anne and Judy
have reminisced on all the
glitz and glamour.

she won the Miss Boort sash
in 1966. She wore a floral
dress and a hat with white
flowers, that blew away in
