This photograph of employees of Acme Candy Company, including a lone unidentified African-American man, appears to have been taken in the 1920s. The candy wholesaler was located at 221 South Goldsboro.
This image is found among the Raines & Cox collection of photographs at the North Carolina State Archives, though it was taken by an earlier photographer. It is catalogued as PhC_196_CW_8482_copy_AcmeCandy. Many thanks to John Teel for sharing.
