A black and white image of the products made by the male students at Bethune-Cookman University. This particular image shows an exhibit of brooms, baskets, chairs, made from straw by the students. In the 1920s, the administration of the school taught the children not only academics, but also vocational training as well to prepare them for life after school. The baskets, hand brooms, and boxes are sitting in a table in the center of the image. The brooms stand next to the window along the back wall. A wicker chair and wood tables sit in front of the larger table. A sign hanging from a curved rod reads "Boys Industries." On the back of the photograph is the note, "Boy's broom making 1926." The photographer of the image is unknown.
