Framed photos of 53 former Phoenix mayors line the 11th floor lobby of Phoenix City Hall.
There are men with thick beards and hearty mustaches, one man with no right eye and, toward the end of the pack, a 53-year-old Thelda Williams with a big, feathered bob.
The black-and-white photo was taken in 1994, during Williams’ first time as interim mayor — well after the invention of color photography.
“I’m not sure if it always was (in black and white), or it just faded,” Williams said with a laugh during an interview in her office just before the Fourth of July.
There’s another image of Williams on the wall, too, just two photos away. This one’s in full color and she’s wearing silver-rimmed glasses.
