This image illustrates drifts of dust in Ford County deposited during the raging storms that swept the area during the Dust Bowl. The drifts have grown large enough to smother the farm machinery, which has fallen into disuse since the drought. The photograph was taken by Stovall Studio, dodge City, Kansas, and is labeled #10.

This demonstrates the dramatic effects of the drought and accompanying dust storms. It is a very stark visual that can demonstrate the effects of early nineteenth century agricultural practices.
