Many cities advertised their prime locations in the 1951 Manufacturer’s Record, dedicated to Mississippi’s industrial opportunities, including Greenville and its port.
If I’m reading this image on MDOT’s Port of Greenville webpage correctly, it looks like they succeeded in expanding the port.

The port picture at the bottom of the article is Vicksburg not Greenville.
Huh, why is it on the Port of Greenville website, I wonder?
Because they made an error in selecting the photograph from the MDOT photos maybe?
Yesterday, I found a brochure about Natchez, similar to this ad, “Natchez and the river : new opportunity on Ol’ Man River”, ca. 1962. 330.9762 N19 at MDAH.
