An attractive young lady for sure, tastefully attired, as drawn by Eleanor Gaddis. We discovered more about Miss Spokane at HistoryLink.org where they tell us ... "An initial contest offering prizes for drawings and designs for the Miss Spokane symbol was officially announced in the Spokane Daily Chronicle on January 17, 1912. On March 7, 1912, Eleanor Gaddis's sketch of a female Indian Maiden figure holding a large jug from which water cascaded was chosen the winner. The Spokane Advertising Club immediately launched a contest to find a human female face to superimpose on Gaddis's drawing."
