This is a photograph showing DS&O Rural Electric Cooperative employees drilling a hole for an electric pole near Solomon, Kansas. DS&O Electric Cooperative was established during the Great Depression as part of the federal recovery effort to bring the advantages and economic stimulus of electric power to rural Kansas. In 1991, Smoky Valley Electric Cooperative in Lindsborg, Kansas, merged with DS&O, adding to the Cooperative's coverage area and member base. It was named DS&O because members were from Dickinson, Saline, and Ottawa counties.

Date: Between 1936 and 1937
