This the famous horseman Ben Wilson of Anderson County. He is standing on Main Street in front of what was Graves Jewelers. That's the J. J. Newberry & Company sign over his head in the middle. Jerry Sampson thinks this photograph was probably taken during Mercer County Fair and Horseshow week.
It has been pointed out that the parking meters on Main Street in this photo are the Duncan 60 models, so it is probably circa 1958-1962. The band member in white walking directly behind Mr. Wilson has tentatively been identified as Carolyn Milburn Hundley.
Does anyone recognize the tall man on the left with his hand on the parking meter?
