A Savannah icon
Originally PUBLISHED APRIL 15, 2006
I saw in the newspaper where HE DIED Thursday. I never knew that his real name was Robert Hall until I read it today. He was always Picture Man to me.
The guy had skin the color of a pecan shell. Looking at him, I could never decide whether he was 40 or 400 years old. But he hustled the street with vigor when he wasn't vending cold drinks in the stands at Savannah Sand Gnats baseball games.
His obituary was short, with no mention of kin. Picture Man was 71 years old when he died.
RIP, Picture Man.
