Finally, the picture I have been looking for . . . a scene showing cotton being unloaded from a Mississippi Riverboat. The picture was taken at a landing near Memphis, Tennessee. I am concluding that one of the most interesting things that you could have done in history was being a Riverboat Captain on the Mississippi River. If you look at the picture above, the cotton and other cargo is on the lower level. What is on the second and third decks? Are those passenger cabins?
