1889 Parade in Rockingham,  NC
Postcard
"Here's a good old one that took me a while to figure out. The view is looking
west and the picture appears to be of some sort of parade in Rockingham. The
building in the very center of the old photo is the former court house which
served Richmond County from 1889 until the 1920's and was located on the
North side of the "Square". Although I can't make out all the words on the
banners, the words "fraternal" and "order" are visible. I'd be very interested in
learning more about this one if there's anyone familiar with the photo. The
reverse of the post card is blank and has no explanation, dates, etc. The "new"
view was taken March 12, 2002. "
