Collection consists of twelve stereographs of rice and cotton cultivation in South Carolina (including Georgetown, South Carolina); Savannah, Georgia; Louisiana; and Mississippi, compiled by Gene Waddell. A majority of the stereographs were produced by the Keystone View Company but the collection also includes stereographs produced by Underwood & Underwood, the Kilburn Brothers, and American Views. Stereograph images depict African Americans plowing, hoeing and flooding rice fields, harvesting cotton, and pressing oil from cooked cottonseeds. Also included are images of a large stone for hulling rice, “Street venders,” and a shipping wharf in Charleston, South Carolina.
