Full Description:
Photographic postcard of six young women of Olympia, WA, Thurston County, likely staff of the legislative session. The identities of five of them are provided in the subject field of this record. The sixth may be the writer of the postcard, identified only as "Jane." They are sitting in an automobile in front of the Old State Capitol Building. The postcard text identifies the car as belonging to Governor Hays. They are wearing summer-weight dresses or waists consisting of tops with wide sleeves, narrow waistbands, and long skirts. On the steps of the building is attorney Frederick W. Loomis and another unidentified man. In the background is the Reed Building. A similar postcard of many of the same group, taken on the same day (catalogue C2013.18.39), alludes to the fact that in this year, 1909, there was an extra legislative session lasting until August 1909. [Note: Frederick W. Loomis's papers are also located at the Washington State Historicl Society]
