Lana Turner in Victory Square, Seattle, June 15, 1942
Lana Turner, one of Hollywood’s most popular stars, visited Seattle on June 15, 1942, to help sell war bonds. She autographed bond receipts at Victory Square, attended a benefit dance at the Trianon Ballroom and sold bonds at I. Magnin’s department store. Ms. Turner promised to kiss anyone who bought a $25, 000 bond at the Star Spangled Bond Rally at the Civic Auditorium that evening.
In this June 15, 1942 photo, Lana Turner has just arrived at Seattle’s Victory Square in a jeep. The popular movie star attracted the largest crowds seen in the square to that date. Victory Square was located on University Street between Fourth and Fifth Avenues.
