secretaries, housewives, waitresses


Do you think they stayed this well dressed throughout, or was this just at school? Or for the picture? Do you think there was any sort of drama between those women who discovered they loved the work and those who couldn't wait for it to be over?

My grandma cut hair in LA before the war and then worked in an aircraft plant in Long Beach during the war. She had to wear a SUIT to cut hair back then. It was a different time.

Got a picture of her in her hair cutting suit?

Yes. Do you have a pic of your sharpie tattoo?
