Southland Flywheelers Bring Van Winkle Cotton Gin Out of Deep Slumber

The Southland Flywheeler Antique Tractor & Engine Club in Alabama restores a circa-1880 cotton gin and get it running on steam power.

The side wall of the Van Winkle feed chest shows a bit of bragging: The gin won first prize at the 1881 International Cotton Exposition in Atlanta.
