Warehouse bench


Title
Warehouse bench
Description
Benches such as this one were seen at many tobacco auction warehouses. This bench came from one of the Ford warehouses in Louisburg, N.C. Not only did these benches serve as a respite for a tired and nervous farmer waiting to see how much money he would gain from his season of hard work, but they also served as advertisements for the warehouse. The more a warehouses name was seen and heard, the more likely a farmer was to remember the name and take his tobacco to be auctioned there. Date approximated. The accompanying video describes the object.
