Mississippi_Carriere_FromLacey-120.jpg (281183 bytes)"From LACEY LUMBER CO., / CARRIERE, MISS." unused sepia-tone Velox real photo postcard with the violet hand-stamp of the company providing the caption, good focus & interesting composition, minor corner rounding & small corner crease nowhere near the image. Shows a high stack of their freshly-milled ('green' is the trade term) and as-yet-unsalable yellow pine lumber, cleverly positioned in a cross-hatched arrangement so as to air it dry & still preserve the straightness of the cuts. The arrangement was a very labor-intensive process involving Negro workers, 2 of whom are shown--one at the top, the other on the stairs besides where he would hand up (or down) the boards. [The spacing between layers would be less in later times, and a modern mill would use a kiln to cut this several-month airing process into a matter of weeks.] By photographing the pile (and a bit of another pile to the right of it) and placing their name beneath the image, the company was trying to show the onlooker how they took pains to insure the dryness, straightness, strength & regularity of their milled stock. Lacey Lumber was one of the smallest mills to open in the county after the building of the New Orleans and Northeastern Railroad in the 1880's. Undoubtedly unique and, because the photo tells us so much, it is quite simply the best Mississippi post card we have ever seen in anyone's stock. Postcard sold. Still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged (about 277% of original area) & enhanced 120-dpi scan in .jpg format. $1.75 mlb
