Here are two versions of "Prairie versus Woodland" drawn by Henry Worrall. The version with a steam locomotive was later used by the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad in its advertising. These comparative views of the "Prairie versus Woodland" imply that working a farm in Kansas was much more productive after six years versus clearing land for a farm in a wooded area after 10 years.

Creator: Worrall, Henry, 1825-1902
Date: Between 1870 and 1880
