Title

Youth Anti-Syphilis Campaign Parade

Description

These photographs show young people parading around the Kips Bay Yorkville area of New York City to promote their anti-syphilis campaign. They are dressed as pilgrims and driving a horse and buggy to bring attention to outdated and backwards ideas about venereal disease.
