What a hoot! It reminds me of junior high school in the
60's...we'd erase the eyes, and black out the teeth of Twiggy (a teen supermodel) in Seventeen Magazine. Wickedly satisfying way to soothe teenage angst LOL!!

I wonder what year this "graffiti" was done? And by whom?

What a find! -- I am giggling -- I would love to know about the person behind this -- someone willing to bend the rules a little bit in his time, or her time -- a jokester for sure!

I have an old tintype, a group of four people, in which the face of one woman has been scratched out. There's a story there. Beautiful work - worlds within worlds. There's a scene in the 1969 film "if" (based on zero de conduit - when the protagonists try to climb behind piles of antiques and mirrors to..somewhere else.
