"High there! -- Lolita Campilla (left) blushes slightly for her friend Linda Meyer, who waves hello to Jesse Carmack, a construction worker" -- Examiner clipping attached to verso, dated, "April 20, 1959". "Iron workers who walk the four-inch steel beams hundreds of feet in the air on construction at the Hall of Justice are under distractions not usually found on the job. The distractions are pretty girls who work a few feet away in the county offices. The iron framework starts in a lightwell [sic] in the basement opposite the coroner¿s office and will reach to the county jail on the 14th floor. It will be a stairway eight feet wide and be used in case of a disaster. Two county employees, Lolita Campillo and Linda Meyer, paused on their coffee break to watch iron-workers Joe Bridges and Jesse Carmack work on the high iron. And, for the many persons in the Hall of Justice who pause to watch the iron workers hustle the steel beams at dizzy heights and wonder "how much money those guys get for doing that" -- it¿s $3.85 an hour or $154 for an 40-hour week" -- Examiner clipping attached to verso.
