Size 0.25 feet of linear shelf space (approximately 20 items)
Abstract The Carolina Trucking Development Company was based in Wilmington, N.C., in the early part of the twentieth century. The Company appears to have been primarily devoted to agricultural development and was involved with establishing farming communities in several counties in North Carolina, some of which were populated by immigrant groups, including German, Dutch, Italian, and Polish peoples. The images in the collection appear to have been taken by or at the request of the Carolina Trucking Development Company, probably for use in promotional materials such as brochures or pamphlets advertising farmland for sale. The images depict farmland, houses, schools, individuals and groups, and farming activities in various agricultural communities in Columbus, New Hanover, and Pender counties.
