Cotton Industry, Early 20th Century
Photograph - Photograph
Cotton industry, early 20th-century artwork. Bales of cotton being loaded onto steam-powered paddle boats in the USA. The first commercial paddle steamers appeared at the start of the 19th century. Cotton plants produce bolls which are harvested and processed to obtain cotton fibre, which is used in clothes and other textiles. At the time of this artwork, the southern US states were producing some eight million bales of cotton annually, transported in paddle steamers on rivers like the Mississippi. Artwork from the 26th volume (second period of 1900) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
