Title Downtown Roanoke Clean-Up Campaign, 1959
Description A black and white photograph showing another view of the display for a clean-up campaign being promoted in downtown Roanoke, Virginia in 1959. The sign on the display reads "Does Your Property Look Like This?...", and is surrounded by slogans that read " Clean Up Paint Up Fix Up NOW". From the store fronts visible in the background, it appears the display was set up on Campbell Avenue SW between Jefferson Street and First Street. From left to right, the store fronts visible include McLellan Department Store (partially visible), Butler's Shoe Store, Lloyd's (women's clothing), Lofts Candies, Bert's Shoes, and Bernard's Young Men's Shop.
