Lea & Little Dry Cleaners (Yanceyville, NC)

Lea & Little Dry Cleaners was a successful black-owned business on the Square in Yanceyville. Employee Thomas Swann is at work in the early 1960s. The building burned in 1970. The Lea and Little families were early supporters of educational opportunities for Caswell’s black children, both with their time and money. (Courtesy Helen Little.)
