Description
This vintage engraving depicts the American inventor Eli Whitney Jr. (1765 - 1825) demonstrating his cotton gin. The cotton gin is a mechanical device that removes cotton seeds from cotton, a tremendous labor-saving breakthrough. It was a key invention of the Industrial Revolution. Engraved by an unknown artist, it was published in a centennial history of the United States in 1876 and is now in the public domain. Digital restoration by Steven Wynn Photography.
