Lewis Nicholson Portrait Design

Capitol Hill merchants, 1990

In 2001, Lewis Nicholson Portrait Design gave the newly created Overbeck Project a CD containing portraits of eight neighborhood merchants; Sharon L. Lewis and Robert A. Nicholson were the photographers. Each portrait was published as a full page in the Hill Rag during 1990, accompanied by a brief "bio" written by Sharon L. Lewis.

The CD was misplaced for many years but luckily surfaced just in time for the 2018 website revision. Printed text of six of the bios was also located; unfortunately, the text for two bios is missing.

Many people will no doubt recognize the merchants whose portraits are displayed, and we've provided the information we have about each. Please contact us to offer additional information or suggestions.
