Mobile, AL: Azalea Maids By Aaron Johnson, Joel Anderson, 2020
- Mobile, AL: Azalea Maids
The Azalea Trail Maids are a group of fifty high school seniors chosen yearly to serve as "Official Ambassadors" for the city of Mobile, Alabama. The Maids, wearing colorful antebellum-style dresses meant to look like flowers, make appearances at many events. They often serve as greeters when foreigners and dignitaries visit Mobile, and are required to be knowledgeable about city landmarks and history. They must have a good grade point average, and have great interview skills. Hundreds of girls try out each year, but only fifty become Azalea Trail Maids, embodying the ideals of "Southern hospitality." Rendered by the award-winning artists of Anderson Design Group in the style of early 20th-Century travel posters, this classic design will look great as a framed print, canvas, metal sign, canvas banner, as a postcard or a notecard.
