Subject: [dba-VB] Silverlight Image in Listbox

Question: I have a silverlight listbox control. It is bound to data in a
database, not an object.
I have the URL for an image stored in each of the records returned from
the database.
I need to display that in the list box.

< Image
     Source="{Binding Path=PhotoURL}"

does not work by itself. The URL stored in the database looks something
like this: "/images/1_0.jpg"

Does anybody know how to get the image to display?
