Elizabeth M. Overmire

By Charles F. Bretzman


Elizabeth M. Overmire was photographed by Bretzman in 1930. The customer card listed the name W.J. Overmire at 4465 Winthrop in Indianapolis. A check of the city directory showed a Wilfred J. Overmier and his wife Elizabeth M. Overmire at that address. Wilfred was a fuel engineer at the C.C.C. & St. L. Railroad. Elizabeth is wearing a hat, pearl necklace, and velvet dress with a fur draped around her shoulders. The 1930 census shows that Elizabeth was 45 years old and her husband was 37.This image is a preservation copy made from an unstable original nitrate negative. The image is part of Series III
