From this weekend’s CityBeats column in the Star-News:

“Upscale stores often pride themselves on giving customers the royal treatment.

Maybe the Nordstrom store at Westfield Santa Anita in Arcadia comes closest — the 1960 Rose Queen, Margarethe Bertelson (Knoblock) is a personal shopper there.”

The oldest-living Rose Queen is 88-year-old Margaret Main, who took the title in 1940. She’s the one in pink in the photos.
