Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in, sometimes briefly.

Archive for the tag “Diamond G Farm”

Diamond G

Diamond G Fabrics (along with Diamond G Farm and Diamond G Aviation, and, maybe, others) were all established by the Austin family of Greeneville TN.  This family kick-started the rise of Greeneville to being, at one time, one of the largest tobacco markets in the nation.  Apparently, Clyde Austin was quite the businessman.  And many thanks to the antique dealer in Greeneville who gave me this card.  The Diamond G logo can be seen above the “AUSTIN” on at least two prominent brick smokestacks in the downtown area.
