Description: 

When Byron Snopes looks for a "negro" to sell him a car for making his getaway after robbing the bank, he searches in "a street occupied by negro stores and barber shops," where he "inquires" for the man "from door to door" (272). No other details about this area of Jefferson are provided, but we locate the street in the same northwestern part of the town as the Negro district in other novels and stories.
