Margaret Gorman, 1st Miss America, Henrys Wall of Fame pt3

This week we were visited by Olivia Gorman, who posed by this photo of her great aunt, Margaret Gorman. 
Margaret Gorman (August 18, 1905 – October 1, 1995) is best known for being the first Miss America, from the year 1921. She was a resident of Washington DC.
Olivia's visit to Mr. Henry's came as the pub entered its first round of voting for America's favorite historic bar. The pub was nominated this week by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Margaret's photo is part of a large collection of entertainment memorabilia from the vaudilville and silent film era.  Henry's proudly displays her photo, along with other famous Washington DC stars, like Mary fuller and Rip Taylor.

Perhaps these little historical  treasures lead to the pub's nomination to The Big Tap" ..a national tournament for historic bars. 

Please help Henry's claim the title of America's Favorite Historic Bar!!!  Simply go to 

www.SavingPlaces.org/BigTap and vote for Mr. Henry's ...this is an elimination tournament and you can vote once a day for them. (Once there go to the Discover tab, then click on Historic bars...Henry's is listed under specialty bars)............Thank you for your help!!!
