Thinking about my intrepid grandmother today who went to Alaska with her best friend in 1906. She came back with postcards from the Earthquake among others. Would I have been that courageous at 16 in 1906? Women didn’t have the vote yet. They still wore corsets and long skirts. She was 4 years away from her college degree at what became UCLA. San Francisco would still have been a pretty rough place in ’06. What did her mother think?
