TitlePlow Sketch
Coverage / Year1908 to 1940
DescriptionA sketch of an early plow, probably hitched to oxen or horses. A hook at the front provides for the hitch. At the back are handles for the farmer to guide the plow. A wheel in the middle provides movement.
InterpretationThis image is from 'Prairie Farmer', formerly 'Illinois Farmer', which was the most popular publication for farmers throughout the early 1900s. Many farmers read their copies cover to cover, as the publication tapped into their interests and lobbied on behalf of their needs.
