The Nebraska Corn Crop Was Not a Tee-total Failure in 1926

The Nebraska Corn Crop Was Not a Tee-total Failure in 1926 

A photo of fields, crops, pastures for the Vintage Photos Theme Park.

Handwritten note on the back of the photo: "Here is a picture, and it does not look as if Nebraska was a tee-total failure in 1926. But 50% was a failure on the corn crop for 1926. Mr. H. G. Bolz."

Rubberstamped on back: "Van Doran Photo Shop, 1406 O St., Lincoln, Neb."

Prohibition was in effect and alcoholic beverages were banned in the U.S. when this photo was taken in 1926, so perhaps teetotalism was on the writer's mind when he said that the corn crop wasn't a "tee-total" failure.

Deborah Lundbech, Smiley Derleth have particularly liked this photo

I wonder what troubled the crop that year. That must have been a huge financial loss for the farmer.Nice vintage shot of Mr. Bolz.
