Yanceyville Square Scene (c.1953)

In 1953, Erwin Duke Stephens (1904-1991), Editor of The Caswell Messenger, attempted to encourage the people of Yanceyville, North Carolina, to clean up the streets. To emphasize his point he ran a series of photographs showing the situation he thought needed attention. Below is one of those photographs.
