Snow Fence 1940 Nebraska

Erecting snow fence. York County, Nebraska. November 1940. Photographer: John Vachon. FSA - Library of Congress.

Every Thursday a carefully selected old agricultural photo is featured here on Big Picture Agriculture — lest we forget how things used to be.


  1. could that be a photo of men repairing a snow fence? notice deep snow in front of the fence, none apparent behind it...

  2. Yes, maybe it blew over. The caption came with the photo, that's all I know.
