  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Commercial.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: An Australian by birth, she owned and operated the Victoria Photographic Company which operated at the same address in 1914 as that used by her former employer I.N. Austin. She continued to use that address for her stamp collecting business after leaving photography between 1927 and 1928. Her death registration record indicates she had worked as a philatelist for many years up until an accidental fall led to her death.
