The Cotton Exchange
Once upon a time this building in Savannah, Georgia was the place where the price of cotton was set. Georgia was the leading cotton producer in the country and Savannah was a major Atlantic seaport. In the 1880 the area was knows as the “Wall Street of the South”. By the 1920s cotton production in the South was devastated by a beetle, the boll weevil, and this building became just a reminder of the glory days.

what a gorgeous building and such a grand entrance door.
Thanks Cath. It must have been really impressive in its glory days. Savannah is a wonderful place for photography – and so much more.
One big door is more than enough today. That’s beautiful.
Thank you, Dan
