Alabama. Tuskegee. Loafers at courthouse door

Photographer

G.R. Swain

Description

Men standing around the entrance to the courthouse in Tuskegee, Alabama. Referred to as "loafers," the men are sitting in wooden spindle backed chairs and standing in the main entrance way of the courthouse. They are all wearing suit jacket and bowler hats. The building appears to be in some disrepair due to window panes missing above the doorway and piles of stone around the foundation of the structure. Slide labeled with text, "Made by G.R. Swain, 713 E. University Ave., Ann Arbor, Michigan." Swain was staff photographer at U of M from 1913 to 1947.
