PHOTO OF THE KYSER-BETTS COTTON GIN
This cotton gin was constructed in the 1890's. A two-story diesel engine was the power source for the gin.
The huge engine was started by a blowtorch to heat the head. The gin had to be braked by hand. The gin
engine was transported on a specially built platform pulled by a team of oxen.
