Council Bans Women From Serving Liquor

Oct. 14, 1909, Briefs 
Oct. 14, 1909: The City Council bans women from serving alcohol. The council killed a portion of the ordinance that would have imposed a 9 p.m. curfew on unescorted women at any business selling liquor, which the police wanted as a way to control prostitution … A woman seeking a divorce says her husband is still married to someone else … And a Pasadena gardener is convicted of molesting the young girls in his clients’ families.
