Three photographs showing a tornado at Hardtner, Kansas. The photographs were taken from Mamie and Fay Rathgeber's farm located two miles north of Hardtner. The Hardtner Press, June 6, 1929, described the tornado as a "big gray elephant trunk or sausage balloon strung across town with one end in the cloud and the other switching around in a cloud of dust on the ground, you can imagine something of what the twister looked like as it passed over town."
