Edward King, The Great South (Hartford, Conn., 1875), p. 560 (Special Collections, University of Virginia Library)
A man is blowing a horn by which buyers are summoned to a tobacco sale (p. 560). Original sketch made by J. Wells Chamney who accompanied the author during 1873 and the spring and summer of 1874. Although relating to the post-emancipation period, the scene evokes the later ante-bellum years.
