Cotton Ginning Day Postcard, 1936, Georgia

This fascinating old postcard crosses a couple of categories, maybe even three. First it's Black Americana because all the drivers on the wagons and the loaders are black. The subject is cotton so agricultural theme may be yet another category, and the wagons are transportation, so that is a third category. On the front of the card, the sender has written to Miss Collins, "I had my boys bring in a few loads of cotton". On the back he writes that "understood you were spending the summer in Athens (GA). Don't work to hard, you should be home to help me rest, fishing, and having some good times doing walking. Hope to see you soon. E.H."

The card is postmarked in Atlanta in 1936. The stamps have been removed. The card image is in good condition. There is small tear in the margin through the word Cotton but not very noticeable.

Post card is 5.5" x 3". Can be mailed via padded envelope using USPS if you prefer. Just let me know. Signature conf. and insurance required.
