|This photo from an unidentified farm shows weighing-up time—the happiest time of the day. The people who picked this cotton owned no interest in the cotton. They were wage laborers working for the landowner who weighed each sheet to see how much each person had earned. (Photo 5065-49 courtesy of South Carolina Library. Poster by Amelia Vernon, about 2001.)|
