I took this image in the fall of 1976 on Broadway between Wilson and Leland. I had just finished changing rolls of film when this very, very short lady walked by me. She used her shopping cart like a walker. You can see her walking stick on the side of the cart. The stick probably doubled as a defensive weapon. A woman who saw this image wrote to say, “There were times when I observed some preying eyes gazing on some unsuspecting female … particularly those that were better dressed. I frequently shopped at the Army Navy surplus store across the street; they had a wide selection of pocket knives, brass knuckles, and the like.” Women in Uptown must have felt very vulnerable.
