This picture is described in the text below.

Newark, Delaware - In the early 1870’s a runaway girl was taken into the woods and killed here. The murderer was never apprehended. Occasionally a pleading high pitched voice and muffled scream can he heard from the woods just off the Swamp Forest hiking train which goes around Lums Pond.
