A parade.

Photographer Charles Raines stood mid-100 block of East Nash Street with his back to the Wilson County courthouse. The occasion of the parade is unknown, and the best guess for the date of the picture is circa 1940. At center-frame, an African-American girl leans from a window above Bissette’s Drug Store. The driver appears to driving a mule-drawn wagon. Does anyone recognize him?
