In 1946, Raines and Cox provided photography service to patrons of the Zam Zam Club, a private, white-only supper club just north of Wilson on Highway 301. While on duty, the photographers also took photos of staff of the club, including this dapper gentleman. Anyone recognize him?

Many thanks to John Teel for sharing this image from the Raines & Cox collection of photographs at the North Carolina. The photo is catalogued as PhC_196_ZZ_8C.
