A black and white image of three African American men cleaning up the fallen branches and leaves in front of Cookman Hall after Hurricane Donna hit Daytona Beach in 1960. The man at the left is wearing a coat and holding a rake in his hands. The other two men are also wearing coats. Behind them, tree branches cover the lawn and sidewalks, and lay in the street. In the background at the right of the image, the brick exterior and columned entrance of Cookman Hall can be seen. On the back of the photograph is the yearbook stamp. The photographer of the image is unknown.
