Miss Marjorie Alexander 1893 - 1983
Touch the photograph to see John Towle actually taking the shot of Miss A.

Only recently the photograph was tracked down to the back of a shed in New Zealand. Good thing the mice liked her.
In her 70s, Miss Alexander was still shooting 16mm footage with her tired Kodak BB Junior in New Zealand.

In a rare moment of "kissing cameras" the late John Towle captured Miss A from the other side with his Kodak box camera.
