Virginia Torbert Treasures

This photo of Winecoff fire victim Virginia Torbert is surrounded by three of her simple treasures: a decorative tea set, a bracelet (recovered from the fire scene) and a bottle of cologne, given to her by a suitor, Charles Greene. Today the items are kept safe and held dear by her sister Barbara.

Virginia Torbert's story is told on pages 88, 169, 175 and 233 of The Winecoff Fire: The Untold Story of America's Deadliest Hotel Fire.
