Sally Smart received a surprise she wasn’t looking for on her birthday last week — seeing a younger version of herself sporting a swimsuit in the Triplicate.

According to Smart’s daughter Mia Ansell, the photo that appeared in the Yesterdays: From the Triplicate Archives on Jan. 8 pictures her mother sitting on a rock with another girl standing nearby.

The photo was taken in anticipation of the 1968 Del Norte County Fair and the Miss Del Norte Pageant, Ansell said. The other girl may be Ethel Wyatt of Gasquet, according to Ansell who got the information from her mother. Though neither girl won the Miss Del Norte Pageant in 1968, Ansell said if the other girl is Wyatt she may have won Miss Congeniality.
