1958 Tractor Plowing in Illinois

Tractor plowing field, DeKalb County, Illinois, 1958.

Photographer: Don O'Brien... "During May 1958, I was on a Farm Journal assignment looking for innovative corn planting ideas. In DeKalb County, Illinois I used a tripod to shoot from my car top platform with a Speed Graphic. I usually used small F stops - probably F16 for this shot. The short published article was titled "Anytime I'm plowing, I'm planting" - a direct quote from the farmer."
