      Hi there, I think that the person of this picture is Lulu Bomhard (Lulu von Miller) the daughter of Oskar von Miller.
      - Lulu went in America with her father in 1929.

      - On this picture of Miller's family on the far right this is writen as Lulu and even if the picture is small her face looks alike your Smithonian photography.

      Deutsches Museum

      - If this picture is Lulu's daughter, Rosemarie Bomhard (Noris) I really see in her face the same face as her mother (But I may be really wrong so I apologize for that, and apologize for their relatives !!). And she would have 13 years in 1929, so her mum Lulu would have around 35-45 years old wich correlate with your picture.

      On this book, page 357,I asked a friend speaking German, and it is said approximately that Lulu Bomhard assumed the functions of his father work in the last years of life of this one.

      I found maybe a descendant of Oskar von Miller and sent an email; waiting for the answer.

      Most of the things are in german wich I do not speak so, maybe I am really wrong, But I feel an intuition !

      You can already correct this :
      By an answer of a relative of the family, Oscar von Miller created the Deutsches Museum in Munich, not in Berlin.
