The Price of Cotton

So what's the price of cotton...100 years or so ago?

You won't find the answer on this sign, but you will find this pre-computer age market 
board on the wall inside Side Porch Sandwiches. The board was discovered 
when the riverside building was renovated but may have been
 used in another Water Avenue building.

What a neat old sign! Glad it has been preserved.

This is a great find.

Interesting. I am sure there are some of those signs as there are many old cotton warehouses in Cols along the river. Many have bed refurbished by the college.
