Note this is actually J. P. Pemberton's "Sons of Hope", 1902, depicting a Social Aid & Pleasure Club parade (now commonly called a "second line") in New Orleans; the original painting is in the Smithsonian [http://collections.si.edu/search/results.jsp?q=record_ID:siris_ari_147355](though at present unfortunately no image of the original painting on line)
