LIFE at Camp Talahi

It’s obviously derivative of a popular magazine at the time, but this brochure for Detroit YWCA Camp Talahi is still a fun glimpse into summer camp life in the ’30s. You can see photos of the inside of the brochure along with a short reflection from an alum over at Reminisce magazine’s website.

What do you think? What does ‘for employed girls’ mean?
