This law is from Nogales, AZ. I wonder if someone’s brother owned a belt factory nearby? If so, this could be an early form of crony capitalism!
This goes back to the days of the Wild West! Could it be one of the earliest attempts to outlaw “gang” symbols?!?
When searching current municipal codes, we found 24 (!) codes that specifically target Noble Street in Anniston, Alabama. They range from jaywalking to parking to where pool halls, billboards, and outdoor dining are or are not allowed. So, it seems logical that at one time, there could have been a dress code here.
