This is an original 1933 halftone print of an aerial view of a Nebraska village. The caption writes, "Nebraska rolls under the plane in squares of maize, wheat, oats, hay so great that the boundaries vanish. A cluster of shacks marks a railroad siding. A clump of trees and a windmill is a farm. The shadow of the plane drifts like a hawk's shadow over the curve of the earth. The continent is naked here like a sleeping woman. The rattle of talk and statistics and wheels and plans is a long way off."
