A Scene Typically Southern is this marketing of bright leaf Tobacco at a warehouse in Richmond, Va. From the surrounding country tobacco farmers have brought the products of their fields to be sold by the auctioneer to the highest bidder. Gathered around the piles of tobacco, (each pile weighed and marked) are the shrewd, experienced representatives of large corporations who quickly appraise and bid for each farmer's product. Sales are speedy, and the farmer is paid spot cash. In the back ground are the large hogsheads into which the tobacco is stored until required for use at the factories.
