Description

Standing from the left with Gov. George C. Wallace (seated) are Hilliard Fletcher, Bert Bank, Richard Shelby, James L. Chancy, Ed Robertson, Snow Hinton, John Culver and Tim Parker Sr.
This photo was likely the signing of a bill by Gov. Wallace in 1971 that provided for re-distribution of taxes to the local municipalities on beer sales in Tuscaloosa and Northport. All men pictured were in government as well as being businessmen. A Tuscaloosa News article on July 4, 1971, mentions the legislation and discusses that all of the individuals who are in the photograph had to agree to get the legislation passed.
