Throughout the years, the way people make a living has changed dramatically, beginning with farming and agriculture, and ending with the age of computers. This new postcard history showcases images of the state at work in the first 25 years of the twentieth century. Images show farmers in the rice fields, using horses and steam tractors, and harvesting cotton, hay, and corn. Later cards focus on the loggers who radically changed the landscape forever. Merchants and bankers of business, including pharmacies, were popular postcard fare as well; these establishments served the farmers who traveled into town, especially on Saturdays when the streets were filled with wagons, and later, cars.
