I love those old PR films.....but the first 2 minutes 30 seconds would be viewed as controversial today. Confederate statues, cotton (look it up cotton is controversial) and saying ladies are pretty. How times change!! Cool film! thx

Heh.Well being that me and my family live in n.c.My grand mother picked cotton as a kid.She hated picking cotton.But they grew other things on the farm.Like pop corn and sugar cane.She was about 12 years old when ww2 broke out.She and my aunts and uncles would tell me about all the trains they would see.

Neat old film and the narrator reminds me of and maybe the one who did the old movie travelogues. I remember as a kid waiting at the PRR station in Wilmington, DE to take the local to Philly and hearing the announcement for "The Seaboard Air Line Silver Meteor arriving on track 2". I often wondered then how a railroad could be an airline.

I really do not know but I found that to be odd as well.
