A Few of Duluth’s Fair Working Girls
This March 1912 Duluth News Tribune clip was found in a search related to Perfect Duluth Day’s “Mystery Photo #63.” You might think it’s interesting the paper had a feature on working women back then, until you read it and discover it’s six paragraphs about a search for Duluth’s “most beautiful working girl,” and asks specifically, “which is the prettiest?”
The strange tale of Ilona Vardis and Jean Kronyl the story leads with is not easily verified on Google, by the way. There are a few old newspaper articles online that repeat the story, but nothing I could easily find that would seem to verify it as something that actually happened rather than someone’s fairy tale invented to sell newspapers.
