Personal Shopper: Miss Frances Fair


  1. As most of you know, Montgomery Fair was where Rosa Parks was working when she made her historic refusal to give up her bus seat and subsequent arrest on December 1, 1955.

  2. does anyone know what her job title was? I need this for a project.

  3. Am I allowed to use one of these images? I am writing a book for children and am trying to find free images to teach Rosa Parks powerful story.

    1. Likely not in a printed book. You should check with your publisher. These pictures were sourced from Alabama state archives and you should check with them about licensing.

  4. It's funny how many of these stores have logos that consist of cursive names on white backgrounds. Maybe that was the problem. Don't do it! It's a curse!

  5. What were the years of operation for the Fair?
