Questions for Photo 2

1. Why is there a flag and black bunting hanging from the house? Who do you think put them up and when?

2. Why are men standing in front of the house? What clues indicate the profession of at least one of the men?

3. How do you think the people standing outside of the house at the time of the inauguration felt? How do you think you would have felt?
