Clip opens with a driving shot down a street in Memphis, with cars from the era parked along a row of storefronts. Following are shots of chemical storage tanks, including one labelled "anhydrous ammonia." Then there's a wide panoramic shot of Memphis from the bluffs and waterfront. Another shot follows of Front Street in Memphis, and the facade of the Mid-South Cotton Growers Association. A montage follows of cotton bales piled on a sidewalk and various cotton industry businesses. Two shots are seen next of cotton analysis by hand and by machine. An aerial shot of Memphis and some footage of the Cotton Parade conclude this clip.
