Governor E. Lee Trinkle

Governor E. Lee Trinkle tips his top hat in this news photograph. Though the unverified caption data on the negative sleeve at the Library of Congress dates the image as February 22, 1923, the details in the image—Trinkle's formal dress, the open car procession, and the bunting on the building in the background—bear the hallmarks of an inaugural parade. Trinkle was inaugurated as governor of Virginia on February 1, 1922.
