When Wesson Was a Boomtown ...

Pin It Now!

From the Don Jackson Collection, Lincoln, Lawrence, Franklin Library
"Main street in Wesson Mississippi. This was a copy that Mr Jackson made for a Mr Kern. Scanned from a 4 x 5 hard copy." -- Library caption.

Here's one I've not seen before.  This old postcard appears to be from the late 1800s, depicting the engine driving the economy, Mississippi Mills in the tall buildings.  Try as I may, I still cannot get my bearings in relation to today's town landscape.  If someone can turn me around and orient me, I would appreciate it.  I think some of the buildings on the left are still in existence today, but I could be wrong.
