Whoop! 1905 Bazaar pictures!
It occurred to me that maybe I could get the P-I's coverage of the bazaar put on by the Women's Auxilliary in Dec 1905. An untold story of women's contribution. The women put on a weeklong holiday bazaar in December and made, according to them 8-9K. They made a huge deal about it, called in every gimmick they could think of. The total cost of the finished building was 36K. Since when can you have a bazaar and raise 1/4 of the price of a new building???? So I started looking at the P-I articles and I found these pictures. Pictures of the bazaar! The doll booth and the flower booth! It makes it so much more real for me to see the pictures. I'm so thrilled. I haven't looked at all the days. There was no index so I just had to look through the film. On 2 different unfamiliar machines.
