Jungle Studio, Daytona, Fla.


Black and white photo taken indoors of the Bethune-Cookman University early college laundry facility. The image is matted to a light-and-dark brown cardboard frame. Written in pencil on the frame is the name of the studio and location of image: "Jungle Studio, Daytona Fla." To the left of the image is a wooden door, with a window each on the left wall and a window on the far back wall. The image was taken during the day because sunlight is shining through the windows. Two industrial-style sinks, one each on the left wall and the back wall, are in this room. Each sink has multiple basins. On the left sink can be made out faucets, as well as washboards laying on the sink's workspace. The sink on the back wall also has faucets, plus a large, circular metal tub sits on this sink's workspace. A single lightbulb hangs from wire from the ceiling, and a wire runs across the celing from one wall to the other. Two wooden support beams stand in the center of the laundry room. The table nearest the door has white material folded on top of it, possibly sheets or clothes. A wicker basket sits underneath the table, also holding white material. To the right of the image are three long tables standing parallel to each other, which are covered in white material. In the middle of the image stands a circular, wooden wash basin. It is presumably full of hot water, because steam can be seen rising from the bowl. A wooden pole used to move the garments around sticks out of the basin. A metal pipe runs from the side of the basin vertically into a large white box, the purpose of which is unknown.
