Dancing in Stripes

Another day another dawn. Is that the saying? Anyways, today I was doing research that involved looking at photographs from the early 1900's and I stumbled across one that was so interesting, I have to share it with you.Taken in 1941, these men were prisoners at the Green County Jail in Georgia and they are singing and dancing. In spite of everything, they found a reason to make music. It's a good way to carry on. I can just imagine these fellas are jamming to some raw jazzy number like this but without the piano...

That's really touching! Sad, but inspiring. Am I making sense here? :-)
