To present this series of photos I will have to go back a few years to the year 1937.
All of these photos are from the same antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota. I think we will call them M’s photos for now.
I think she worked or went to business school in Downtown Minneapolis. She lived at 123 South 11 th Street The Hotel Sheridan is in Minneapolis.
1937 Fall In front of the apt house where I first lived. 123 So. 11th St.
Alice, Jinny, Addle, Verna
1937 Adeline, Verna, Alice
In 1937 women made on an average$525.00 a year. Most worked in domestic service (maids, cooks), clerical or teaching jobs and a few were nurses. Many worked and sent money home to their families. The depression years were hard years.
I think these gals worked in the clerical field or went to business school, or perhaps they were maids in the hotel.
Thanks for stopping by. Do come again:)
