Description

This color slide shows a policeman directing traffic during the Wagon Train through King Street at the intersection with Appalachian Street in Boone. A former used car lot, located where Wild Harvest was most recently located, is visible in the background. The Wagon Train, which traveled over multiple days from Wilkes County to Boone, began as a celebration of the 300th anniversary of the founding of North Carolina in 1963. The event would be held every summer until 1974. According to Gary Boye, Charley and the Angel and Cinderella (seen on the theatre marquee in other images in this series) played at the Appalachian Theatre 6/28 thru 6/30 in 1973, indicating the date of this image.
