Help re Black Dog Man recreation photo?
« on: September 16, 2021, 08:48:27 PM »
All,

I know I've seen, sometime in the (distant?) past, a recreation of the famous Willis 5 "Black Dog Man" figure, but the recreation was a photo of a researcher (?) in the Black Dog Man location, but the photo was taken from a point probably on the steps up from the street above and behind the posed Black Dog Man figure, and looking down towards Elm Street. Does anyone have a copy - or know where I might find a copy of - that posed photo, please?

Any help would be very greatly received.

Thanks in anticipation.

Is this the one, Chris? It's not the best quality i'm afraid.

The researcher in the BDM position on the left photograph is Gary Shaw.

The photo on the right shows Gordon Arnold where he claimed to have stood.

The Gary Shaw photo may reflect a decade's worth of erosion and subsidence since the assassination. The interior corner ground area has since been restored causing the ground level to be raised. So maybe someone standing there in 1963 might not have the concealment that Gary Shaw took advantage of.

Duncan and Jerry,

That is, indeed, the photo I was looking for. Many thanks indeed for your help - much appreciated.
