A sheet containing four photographs during the Chattanooga sit-ins of February 1960. These images was taken on the fourth day of protests when the streets were teeming with shoppers, protestors, and onlookers. Over 1000 people were in the streets. The first three photographs are of crowds gathered on Market Street in front of Thom McAn, Flagg Bros Men's Shoes, Rone Jewelers, Craig's Shoes, Holiday Shoes, and Burt's Shoes. People were watching from the windows of tall buildings. The last photograph seems to have been taken from down the road. The name "Mooney" is written on the back.
