Crop of flue-cured tobacco

1924

This scene in rural Oxford, Granville County, North Carolina, shows the tobacco crop almost ready for harvest. Flue-cured tobacco processing is preferred to air-cured in North Carolina, and the state ranks first in U.S. tobacco production. Granville County is in the northern part of the state near the Virginia border.
