Learn about the work, opportunities and lives of female laundresses, housekeepers and maids at the Tampa Bay Hotel.
We are proud to present a temporary panel exhibit, “Dirty Laundry: True Tales of Women Workers at the Tampa Bay Hotel”: In the early twentieth century, progressive reformers and national magazines both discovered the working woman. This exhibit showcases the lives of one group of such women, the housekeepers, maids, and laundresses who labored at the Tampa Bay Hotel. Their stories vividly reveal the opportunities, dangers, and constraints that came with the expansion of women’s service sector employment.
This exhibit was created by Dr. Charles McGraw Groh, Associate Professor of History, The University of Tampa, and his students.
Included with Museum admission. $10 adults, $7 seniors/students, $5 children
