Negro Laborers at Alexandria Wharf
This photo was posted by the National Archives and labeled as “negro laborers, near coal wharf.” This beautiful old photo shows the faces of regular African-Americans in the 1860s, living and working around Alexandria. Photos like this really make you wonder who these individuals are, what their lives were like, and what happened to them. We shared some great photos a long time ago of young boys working hard jobs in Alexandria. Check those out.
