This is a stereograph showing Poland China hogs in an alfalfa pasture in Kansas. This was probably a stereograph sold to schools. The back side discusses the relationship of corn to the hog industry, additional crops fed to hogs, and the history of the Poland China breed. In 1905, Keystone View Company, which produced this stereograph, began its Educational Department, selling views and glass lantern slides to schools throughout the country. Over the years, hundreds of educational sets were marketed to teach geography, social studies, science, history and reading.

Creator: Keystone View Company
Date: Between 1910 and 1920
