Stewardess

Transcontinental and Western Air, 1935

In 1935, Thelma Jean Harman became the first stewardess for T.W.A. She wore this summer uniform while flying aboard Ford Tri-Motors along T.W.A.’s “Lindbergh Line” from New York to Los Angeles. The stewardess badge on her coat was a later addition to the uniform.
