  1. The Oakland store originally opened as Whitthorne & Swan, acquired by Hale's in 1926, and renamed Hale's in 1940.

  2. Hale Brothers, 979 — 987 Market Street. This department store engaged a graduate nurse August 12, 1903. Number of nurses: One. Salary: $65 per month. Hours: 9 a. m. to 6 p. m. Classes of cases cared for: Surgical and medical. Plan of Work: The nurse cares for the health of the five hundred employes, and assists customers who may be taken ill in the store. The firm maintains an emergency hospital in the build ing where cases of sudden illness may be cared for temporarily. Calls are often made upon employes in their homes, and in urgent cases, the nurse sometimes spends the night. Talks on personal hygiene are given to the girls and young women, and there are many opportunities for service on social lines.

  3. I started working for Hale's in 1962 in their display department, sign printing section. As I recall, I worked their to 3-4 years, eventually leaving to go to college. I started at the grand salary of $1.00 per hour. Signs, in those days, were made with lead type and, occasionally, special woodcuts, and ink that was rolled on them with a rubber roller. Card stock was placed over the "type" and a hand roller would fix the lead type(or woodcut) image to the card stock. During busy or holidays, I would also assist the display crew with window displays. I got to do the Men's window, once, when we were short on personnel due to vacations. Over the next few years, I would also work in the Weinstock Department Store over the Christmas Holidays.

  4. I'm very grateful for your detailed knowledge. I was researching mezzanines in the dept. stores in SJ, where I grew up. You have exactly the contents of it! Thanks for your work. SMcPherson, Professor Emerita, UCDavis
