Do you know?

As we wrap some things up for the book, we're still hoping to find information on a few items. Maybe you know...

Do you know about the SSA, Specialty Stores Association? It was a group of about 14 or so specialty stores the partnered and had offices on the coasts... we know they were around in 1940 and as late as 1961. Any additional information is welcome. Update: The SSA was started in 1921. We've found more information from newspaper accounts that we will share in a future post.

A reliable source tells us that Marilyn Monroe's voice was recorded and used to announce the floors you arrived on from the Plaza store elevators. Does anyone remember this? Can you confirm that it was indeed Marilyn?

Thanks much.
