Roberts City Studio, 809 Roberts Street, Tampa, Florida


A black and white image of the Wildcats Majorettes dance team and fellow female Bethune-Cookman students posing next to a decorated car. The Majorettes can be identified as the women wearing the white marching suits, tall white band hats, white boots, and carrying batons. The other women in the photograph are dressed in shirts and hats from Bethune-Cookman University. On the back of the car sit three women wearing dresses. An American flag flies above the back of the car. On the right side of the image, parked behind the decorated car is another car where men can be seen standing. They are also students from Bethune-Cookman, as evidenced by the back of a man's jacket that has the school's name and location on it. They are parked along a business district. The girls and their car is parked in front of the Robert City Studio, the same studio that took this photograph.
