Chance Picture in Chicago Defender

What makes newspapers so fascinating to research in, is you just never know what is going to be in there.

I just love seeing ordinary people and realizing that pictures such as these of ancestors await someone.

I am not sure why this man appeared in the May 6, 1950 issue of the paper, but it may have been related to a Bud Billiken promotion.
