This just barely made the "Time Capsule"
Camera: Miranda sensorex 
Posted By: charliezap, 02-22-2012, 08:07 AM

This photo has been hidden for years and has not been seen by anyone because of the poor quality and I almost threw it away but decided to play with it and see if it may become presentable.When the Boston Strangler was arrested in Lynn Ma(1967) he was taken from the Lynn Police station for transport back to prison and when the door was open on the police car I managed to get one shot off.It's not great but he does seem to be looking my way.I've included the original scanned picture with the "saved" version and if anyone wants to play with it be my guest.--charliezap

The photo was not as good as the other ones from that day Tom and I almost dumped it.I guess it won't hurt to keep.Here's a link to the "good" ones.It'll be 45 ago this week.

In those days I had a one channel crystal controlled police radio that was tuned to the Lynn Police frequency and it lead me to the action was at the time.--charliezap

An absolutely remarkable photo, Capn - and real slice of history you captured personally. Outstanding, my friend.

Thanks Jer. I'm going to slow down the time capsule a wee bit. We've got packing to do before we hit the road for Florida on Sunday.--capn zap
