Elwood P. Smith, a.k.a. "Smitty," the legendary Daily News photographer who took this picture of Frank Rizzo with a nightstick in his cummerbund, and many other iconic photos of Philadelphia in the tumultuous 1960s and 1970s, died yesterday. He worked at the DN until his late 80s (!) and squeezed everything he could from life. Rest in peace.
