Description: Boards bound in corduroy, woven at the Exposition Cotton Mills. Light wear to exterior. Pages show foxing, else clean and unmarked. Laid-in is a 8x10'' photograph inscribed by the Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors, Emory Cocke. [52] pages. 12 x 9 inches.

A commemorative, illustrated historical overview of the Exposition Cotton Mills Company of Atlanta, Georgia. The company was founded in 1882, its shareholders having acquired the buildings and grounds of the previous year's International Cotton Exposition (which had been the site of the city's Oglethorpe Park).

Includes material on the International Cotton Exposition, the company's founding and acquisition of its buildings, the changing culture of Atlanta during the 1880-90s, war time events, and pictorial presentations of the men, women and machines of the company, including many photos of factory floor operations, employees at work and play, and company executives. Includes three group photos of the employees who had worked continuously with the company for ten or more years (each with name identification).

The photo laid-in appears to be of company executives, and is inscribed on the back by Emory L. Cocke (1897-1980), the VP of the board of directors. The picture appears to include the company president, George E. Glenn, and five other men. It is inscribed to George Malone [there is a 1953 thesis paper submitted at Georgia Tech which notes a George Malone associated with Exposition Mills management; the 1950 census also lists a George D. Malone who is a ''2nd assistant superintendent'' at a cotton mill.]
