Biographical/Historical Note

The International Cotton Exposition of 1881 was one of three expositions in Atlanta designed to attract business and venture capital to Atlanta. The other two expositions were in 1887 and 1895. Buildings were erected for the 1881 exposition along what is now Ashby Street in west Atlanta. In 1882, these structures were converted into a textile mill and became the Exposition Cotton Mills which stood until 1971.


Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of issues of The Exposition, a newspaper published for the employees of the Exposition Cotton Mills. The newspaper, published semi-monthly, printed primarily information pertaining to the mill and its employees. Some issues included advertisements for the mill store and beauty shop as well as leisure activities organized by the mill. Most issues printed photographs of mill employees and their families and mill sponsored events. A few of the issues include historic photographs of mill employees, highlighting those individuals or descendents still employed by the mill.
