Has been many, many years since I saw a cotton gin......thanks for the memories. It was a lot different when we were picking cotton and taking to the gin. They used to give you a gold rimmed plate for using their gin.
Yikes... I'm glad they get all those seeds out! Thanks for the photos... very interesting.

Oh my goodness, that makes my back hurt!! We grew cotton until 1959, and since there were 7 children, we worked our own fields...glad I ha the experience but don't want to do it again! LOL
been there, did that,$3/day for chopping and $2/100 lbs for picking. Sun up to sun down. burning hot sun, The shade tree was always a mile away. I think it made me what I am today. so I don't have to do it again.Our farm went from cotton to sheep to dairy. Boy have tech come a long ways
