PhotographÂ was edited for publication purposes Photograph article dated May 21, 1962 reads, "German-born Erika Peters may not be the only actress in Hollywood who takes in laundry but she's sure the only one who isn't ashamed to admit it. In fact, she's quite proud of it - and justly so. This five-foot bundle of sex appeal owns five (count 'em: five) of Los Angeles' plushest do-it-yourself Laundromats. So the phrase 'She's cleaning up' is doubly true for Miss Peters since she not only is extremely active in the lucrative movie and TV fields but is also considered one of the town's most astute young business women. Not content to be 'Queen of Hollywood Laundresses,' Erika's business interests include importing Volkswagens, hotel property in Phoenix and a ranch in Australia. Well, that's sho' business, honey-chile. Yazzuh, yazzuh."; See images #00129000 through #00129004 for all photos in this series.
