Mooney, Jim


Black and white photograph of firemen using firehoses as crowd control during the Chattanooga sit-ins of February 1960. This was taken on the fourth day of protests, Wednesday, February 24, 1960. Around 5:00 pm that day, police in Chattanooga began the notorious fire hose crowd control tactic that is strongly associated with the Civil Rights movement. The scene occurs on Market Street in front of Burt's Shoes, Robin's, Busch's, Gordon's, a drugstore, Baker's, Kay's, and Haverty's stores. The name "Mooney" is written on the back.
