CZ – embroidered letters on side of blue California Zephyr “Zephyrette” linen uniform hat. This very rare offering also includes a red & white celluloid employee identification badge issued to Miss Plagge as well as her business card. When I met Miss Plagge she told me how she had been reading a 1956 magazine that talked about the train and the job of a Zephyrette. She said it sounded so intriguing that she applied and her career was set from there on. She ended up meeting Mr. Lundquist who was a steward at the time. They of course married and spent the rest of their lives together which I am happy to report continues today. She cut out that magazine advertising and always kept it so I am also including that in the lot. These were truly wonderful people that I so enjoyed having the opportunity to meet. I know that this historic piece will be enjoyed for years to come by the next lucky caretaker.
