Mom was a "frequent flyer" of M&F always on Fridays on the bus from Erroll Heights, bundled up warm in the winter months with my child navy p coat with a winter scarf (and a beany which I hated, threw it off when I got big enough to get away with it). I don't even like to wear hats today. Meier and Frank was an adventure that was given to me as a kid on a regular basis by my Mom's wise shopping habits. Courtesy of the Eisenhower Recession of 1953, she felt it necessary to find employment. who did she turn to? you already know the answer. she was hired in the "Foundations" Dept. (John, that's girdles to you). When the escalator was installed, it sure made my job as a kid a lot more fun!

Portland Mayor Dorthy McCullough, and Aaron Frank cut the ribbon on the new 14 floor Meier & Frank escalator system on Monday 10/2/50. The project took 7 months, and cost $ 1.5 million dollars, and could move 8,000 people per hour.

Courtesy of the Eisenhower recession of 1953, Mom sought employment to help our Dad who worked for Gasco so a first for a family of 5. who did she turn to? no surprise here. She sold girdles and stuff for M&F until 1960 When they installed the escalator it sure made my job as a kid a lot easier and fun
