"Original Caption: Fifty years ago, Jessie Carter Brohson (second from right) posed with the original group of eight that became the first women airline stewardesses. All were registered nurses, a requirement in those days. Mrs. Bronson, now retired in Hawaii, flew the run from San Francisco to Cheyenne. (1930, San Francisco)" © Bettmann/CORBIS

  1. No worries – I’ve just edited the caption to make it a little more clear. The above photo is from the 1930s, and was likely re-published in the 1980s with the above caption. Sorry it wasn’t more clear! You can also click on the photo for more detailed information from the original source. Happy reading!
