These remarkable photographs of cotton picking time in Laurens County
are courtesy of Tom Sikes. The photos are from a promotional notebook
of his father, M.H. Sikes, who operated a cotton gin in Cadwell and many farms
in Laurens County, Georgia during the first four decades of the 20th Century.
Thanks Tom for the photos and thanks to Chris Rawlins for letting us know about these pictures
which depict a part of our past.
