10 thoughts on “Shoe Shine Competition

  1. Hi Will & Lisa,
    I have some wonderful photos of a “North Carolina Shoe Shine Contest” that were shot for LIFE Magazine in 1952. Based on the photo you posted, Will, I think it’s probably the same event. The story was never published and I would love to identify some of the young men in the photos and get oral histories for our photography archive if possible. The contest looks like a very popular event–the auditorium is filled to capacity.
