ORANGEBURG OUT OF THE PAST

“When It Rains It Snores,” 1964: So read the headline above this picture on June 26, 1964 in The Times and Democrat. There was a heavy rainfall in Orangeburg just before this picture was taken, thus no one was brave enough to go out and be rained upon. So at the Brickle and Wiles Barbershop, the personnel were taking it easy when no clients were present and were catching up on some rest. The photographer for The Times and Democrat happened to be walking by on the sidewalk and could not resist taking this picture through the plate glass window. Left to right: Herbert Brickle, Lewis Wiles, and shoe shine person James Albert Robinson.
