    Henry Howard “Cotton” Abell, 94, first started taking pictures when he was 10 years old. He won a kite-flying contest and the first prize was a box camera. He continued taking pictures until a few years ago due to macular degeneration. Cotton took most of the photos featured in Cotton’s Corner, but his first cousin, Bill Abell, also took some.
