1912 - The Pretty Girl Wage Earner Contest

The San Francisco Call
December 1, 1912

Maybe one reason that business is always good in San Francisco is because beauty presides behind the counter.  Just how true this is may be estimated from the photograph of Miss Florence Baker, saleswoman, to whom a gold watch is awarded today in the pretty girl wage earner contest.

This watch is a 15 jewel Waltham or Elgin movement in a 20 year gold filled case, with gold brooch and a plush box such at The Sunday Call has been awarding to the prettiest  photograph published each Sunday.

The contest is now almost over.  The hundreds of photographs of independent young business women of the city will soon go into the hands of the jury of artists which will consider them and name the lucky girl who is to receive The Calls grand prize of a steamer trip to Honolulu.  Other pages of photographs will be found in today's issue.  See them all.
