Buying fireworks



Tony Greene, Jr., 11 (left), and his first cousin Bertram Kettles, 13, both from Georgia, purchase fireworks from Alicia Pendleton, 15, at a stand just over the Fifth Street Bridge in South Carolina. According to Pat Pendleton, co-owner of the business with her husband, fireworks have been sold from this location for 30 years. Their business is seasonal with the big times of the year around July Fourth, New Year's, and at Christmas (for stocking stuffers).
