Georgia.-The Cultivation of Rice-Work in the Field and Mill. This beautifully hand colored wood engraving is from Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper. It is dated May 12, 1883 and shows five scenes entitled "Primitive Ploughing","Rice Field, "Savannah River", "Courtyard of a Rice Mill", "Home Sweet Home" and "Hoeing Rice". From photos by O. Pierre Havens, these images are sadly evocative of the back breaking labor in the cultivation of rice. It measures 16 x 11 inches.
