#800. Seed Hamper

The whole purpose of running cotton through a gin is to extract the seeds from the cotton. At the Burton Cotton Gin in Burton, Texas the seeds, once extracted, were piped over to this hamper where the farmer could pull his wagon under the hamper doors and dump enough seeds for next years planting with plenty extra for mulch.
