Hauling Cotton From the Fields Along Shoaf Creek

Merle Riley during the early 1960's readying cotton for the trip to the gin on the old Riley farm along Shoaf Creek near the New Chapel Community. This photograph was in a collection of photos of New Chapel Farm given to me by my aunt, Erin Cockrell Riley.
