Cotton Weighing Platform  in Brookshire circa 1892
The photo shows Otto Street north in Brookshire. Bales of cotton with children seated upon them are in the foreground. The large building on the right is the K. C. Hall, which also had plays, suppers, dances, and other entertainment. The nearest building on the left is Ferguson?s store (Hopkins? location), then McGaughys Drug Store, a barber shop, and the two story building at the end of the street was the Munsey building. It later became the store of Mose Summer and Joe Wander (Max Wander?s father).
