This shot was taken on Halloween, October 31, 1977. There appears to be a headless grocery shopper strolling along Wayne Avenue in Germantown.


The Philadelphia Evening Bulletin staff would often manipulate photographs prior to publishing them in the newspaper. The above photograph was featured in an article on Philadelphia houses. A woman blocked their shot, so the Bulletin painted the background over her head and cropped the image just above her shoulders.
