Biography: 

All we see of the people who live in what the narrative calls "the restricted district" of Memphis through which Red's funeral procession passes are their "faces," which "peer from beneath lowered shades" as it goes by (249). While it is not absolutely clear what "restricted district" refers to, the point of this passage seems to be to juxtapose two worlds in Memphis: the underworld and the respectable (but intimidated) citizenry.
