Designed by Enoch William Brown and built during a cotton boom in the mid-1880s, the Augusta Cotton Exchange is one of the most beautiful buildings in the downtown historic district. After restoration in 1988, it served as a welcome center for the Augusta Convention & Visitors Bureau and is now a branch of the Georgia Bank & Trust.

I’ve photographed this house for seven years (as of 2016). It’s an amazing survivor, though I fear its days are numbered.

Lewis W. Hine’s  (1874 – 1940) photographs are credited with bringing to the national consciousness the plight of child laborers in early twentieth century America. Social historians consider these images a major influence on much-needed child labor reform.
