Description

Photograph taken from Pratt Street at the west side of South Bethel Street in Baltimore, Maryland. This narrow street consists of two- and three-story brick row houses, with streetlights and utility poles set at intervals along the sidewalk. In the right foreround is a corner store with signs such as Pepsi-Cola and 7-Up attached to the building. In the left foreground, standing in the doorway of the first house, is a middle-aged Caucasian woman stairing at the photographer. Farther down the block are two African American women standing in front of or sitting by the front door. Rocking chairs have been turned over and leaned against the walls of most houses. Pushing a two-wheeled wagon up the middle of the street is an African American man. Behind him in front of the houses on the right side of the street is an African American boy playing, and behind him is a parked car.
