[Photographs]: African-American Boy Scouts in Pennsylvania

Sold

Unbound. Approximately 62 loose black and white gelatin silver photographs, mostly of African-American Boy Scouts and their parents, both groups sometimes in uniforms. Various sizes, perhaps an average of 3½" x 3½" with several both larger or smaller. A few with torn perforations as removed from a photo booklet, a few corners a little bumped, perhaps moved from album corners, one image stapled onto a thin card backer, but overall near fine. A substantial number are date stamped "May 1960," none are captioned. A healthy majority are of African-American Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, and/or their parents; a few are of troops of primarily white Scouts and their leaders, or groups of the two races together. A couple are of baseball games. Although uncaptioned, in one image a group photo is taken in front of the Faith Presbyterian Church (and could likely be identified). Two particular images depict a group of black Scouts performing a ritual Native American dance. A pleasing group of chronologically and subject specific images.
