View of Clotilde Shirk standing in front of a door in collard dress, shoes, holding a long apparatus in left hand, holding door open with right hand.
Photo is probably related to the article, “Talmadge Bandit Hunted as Identity Clews Found.” Los Angeles Times, 3 Sept. 1935. Article reports the bandit "entered the home of Miss Talmadge posing as a florist shop deliveryman, dropped a flower box which concealed a revolver in his hands, when a maid, Clotilde Shirk, answered the door. As he pressed the revolver against the maid, Miss Talmadge heard the scuffle and entered the room. Her screams frightened the bandit."
