Harvey Girls

+4 votes
Hello just wondering if anyone out there has ever worked on the Harvey Girls or Picture Brides and taken that on as a project. Or mail order brides in general really.


I hope that works, if not check Youtube for Today I Found Out. Ever since seeing Sarah Plain and Tall I have been wondering about the concept of that film. Apparently men and women taking out ads in papers was a very common thing during Manifest Destiny and beyond.

For anyone interested in the wild west or WWII these would be great.

Hi! I Added a few tags to your post to get the attention of the project leaders for our US History project, etc.
Thank you. I can't wait to hear the stories that come from this project. History and odd people and unusual circumstances are always fascinating for me. Elijah
