A History Of Events And Happenings From Exactly One Hundred Years Ago

Shop Girl’s Lucky Day

Lulu Church worked as a shop girl for a store in Los Angeles.
On May 31, 1912 Ms Church was hurrying to work when she lost her hat. She was afraid if she stopped for it, she would be fired for being late. She got permission from her manager to go and retrieve the lost hat but by the time Ms Church arrived, it had been ran over by an automobile. The tattered chapeau was being held by 3 men in front of a fancy hotel. Ms Church was surprised and delighted when she asked for her hat back because the 3 gentlemen were wealthy manufacturers and gave her $50 to buy a new hat. Ms. Church spent the entire amount on a new hat for herself.

“I always wanted one like that but never believed I would have one.”
