|Description||A line of plows drawn by mule teams going into the distance, are apparently plowing a stubble field. In the foreground, Ed Nybakken is seated on a two-bottom plow drawn by four mules. His hand is in the air, touching the brim of his hat, and blocking his face. Behind him seated in a two-wheel buggy with a dog beside him, is field boss Elihu Barber. Behind Barber is foreman Sam White. He is standing in a buggy hitched to two horses, and is looking away from the camera. This view was used on the 2-cent U.S. commemorative postage stamp, entitled "Farming in the West, " for the Trans-Mississippi Exposition in Omaha, Nebraska, in 1898. |
