Description: 

"Maury Priest's livery stable" (11) provides the people and businesses of Jefferson with a variety of services: distributing "boxes and cases of freight" from the railroad depot to the town's stores (4), taxiing people from the depot to the hotels or home from the opera house (8), and so on. The day and night foremen are white, but otherwise the staff - drivers, hostlers, blacksmith and stall cleaners - are mostly black. In addition to the stable, it contains an office and a harness room.
