Two Indian Workers Attract Attention

Here is a newspaper article that discusses the Riverside County Fair in 1916 where Margarita Brittain and Salvadora Valenzuela put on some demonstrations at the Pala Booth. Margarita Brittain demonstrated basket weaving and Salvadora Valenzuela demonstrated lace making. It's a pretty neat article. It's a little hard to read but if you enlarge it and squint a bit you can get through it. Great information considering the time period. I am also including the accompanying picutres.
