    Beautiful pic of Sunflower County’s courthouse with the snow and all.

    Last time I was in the Amite County courthouse in Liberty, there was a set of spittoons on the mantel of the main courtroom. Don’t think I’ve ever seen that before.

      Believe it or not, we had working spittoons in our courtrooms here in Meridian as late as the late 70’s. The trusties cleaned them out weekly.

      • Bob Wolford says:

        WEEKLY???? UGHHHH!! I can’t imagine the lingering aroma of tobacco expectorant and cuds that must have permeated the courtrooms back then. And this is coming from a guy that is a smokeless tobacco user.

      • Larry says:

        Smoking was allowed in the courtroom, even during trials. Judge Neville himself smoked a pipe while on the bench. There were cigarette burns on all the tables, and it was accepted practice to smush out your butts underfoot on the burn-pocked cork floor. Nobody gave it or the spittoons a second thought.
