About this Item

30pages. Paper / Soft cover reprint edition in very good or better condition, slight wear to edges. Overall good copy of this scarce title. Excellent read. A good book to enjoy and keep on hand. Or would make a great gift for the fan / reader in your life. Excerpt: The Marsden sisters, born in England, were milliners. Louisa Rockerbraun, from Germany, was a grocer, and Anne Lee was an African-American prostitute in Wheeling, Virginia, before the Civil War. They were unusual because they were not domestics or washwomen - the jobs that most immigrant women, and most African-American women had, in Wheeling, Parkersburg, Martinsburg, and Charleston, West Virginia, by 1870. The stories of the Marsdens, Rockerbraun, Lee, and the hundreds of other immigrant and African-American women in these cities help us understand the ways in which women earned their living in these cities and the impact of ethnicity and race on their choices. Size: USA / America / Americana / United States. Bookseller Inventory # 5024191
