Figure 160.     Mars Bluff gin-house books

These eleven small record books, dated in the 1920s, were from the cotton gin that stood behind the Mars Bluff depot. The books state the amount of cotton brought in to the gin, whose cotton it was, the weight of the seeds taken out, and the weight of the bales of cotton.  These books were given to the hewn-timber cabins collection in 1995 by the estate of Amelia M. Wallace and are in the Arundel Room, Rogers Library, Francis Marion University.  (Photo 1999)
