At Black Then, we frequently see interesting photos that give us a glimpse into the past. They tend to show us a piece of black history that is often not covered in textbooks, in history classes, or shown in the media.
In a photo that we found on Black History Album , we see this great image called “99 Bottles of Beer (on the wall) | 1940” . The picture shows Welcome to Frenchies Bar and Beer Garden. An all-in-one mini-mart, bar, “juke joint,” and gas station catering to black cotton field workers,Louisiana, 1940. Original color photograph.
