Harvey Girls: Opportunity Bound

Episode 1 of 1

America's tales about taming the Wild West rarely include women. But in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, more than 100,000 pioneering young women left home to work as waitresses in restaurants located on train platforms along the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway. THE HARVEY GIRLS: OPPORTUNITY BOUND explores the lives, experiences, and contributions of the women who worked for the Fred Harvey restaurant empire.
