Dan River Mills Postcard

A color-tinted postcard, postmarked on July 30, 1923, shows the New Riverside Cotton Mill along the Dan River in Danville. Opened in 1882 as the Riverside Cotton Mills, the company manufactured apparel fabrics and home fashion products. It grew to become the largest textile firm in the South and was renamed Dan River Mills.
