  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Commercial, assistant (portraits).
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: She was the only daughter of William and Amelia Foxall and assisted her father in his portrait studio. She was involved with the Methodist Church. While she may have appeared in April 1917 in an amateur theatrical production called "Snapshots" presented by the Ladies' Aid Society of the Metropolitan Methodist Church, her name is not mentioned in the Colonist newspaper review. The play was about life in a photo studio and "Miss N. Foxall" acted as the retoucher. This person is likely Nellie Foxall. [11, 12]
