Title: Cotton warehouse after tornado
Date: 1903 June
Description: Cotton warehouse after tornado, June 1903. Photograph showing a big cotton warehouse in Gainesville after the tornado of June 1, 1903. This building served to partly protect the Gainesville Cotton Mill, thereby saving the lives of fully 500 people who were on the 1st and 2nd stories of the mill building. The warehouse, which was struck first, served to throw the force of the wind into the air. (caption originaly published with what seems to be wrong photo #0192)
