Cigar Counter Girl Must Go

Recommended Posts



The owner of a cigar stand was arrested for employing a “cigar counter girl.”

A little-known law forbade girls or women from being employed in a place “where dice, cards, pool or games of that nature are played.” Many cigar shops and pool halls doubled as card rooms.

Police served notice that they were cracking down on the problem. The cigar proprietor had been asked to comply with the law a month earlier, but ignored the request.
