Yesterday: Holiday Caravan

Bobby E. Starnes sent this photograph — a newspaper clipping published Nov. 25, 1971, in the Salisbury Post. Photographer James Barringer took the picture on the previous day while Starnes and his daughters, Sherri Jean (in the middle) and Regina Anne (closest to camera) were watching the Holiday Caravan from the second-story windows of the Endicott Johnson shoe store on South Main Street in Salisbury. ‘Our sister-in-law worked there,’ Starnes says, ‘and she allowed us to come inside and watch the parade because it was raining in Spencer but was clearing up as the parade arrived in Salisbury. James Barringer was walking around down on the sidewalk below us, and he looked up and saw us. I saw him head to the front door of the store. In a few minutes he was standing beside us and wanted to take a couple of pictures.’ The photograph ran on the front page the next day. The girls are now Sherri Jean Starnes Carscaddon and Regina Anne Starnes Stewart.
