    Interesting photo……do you think this could have been taken upon their arrival to Pierce Brothers Mortuary on Washington Blvd. for Thelma’s lying-in-state? As we can see, poor Mrs. Todd isn’t looking too sprightly and the background and sidewalk are similar to the area in question. Just wondering…

    And not to mention she is being escorted by none other than Roland West.

    Okay, I’m going now.
