A good crop
Title: A good crop
Date: 1900-1914

Turn-of-the-twentieth century image of cotton bales being stored on unidentified street in downtown Augusta, Georgia. Throughout August and September thousands of cotton bales lined the streets along Augusta's Cotton Row. The close proximity of Bay, Jackson, and Reynolds Streets to both the railroad and Savannah River provided an ideal location for the storage of baled cotton.

Original postcard scanned and described by the Digital Library of Georgia as a part of Georgia HomePLACE: an initiative of the Georgia Public Library Service and GALILEO.
