Transcription"ND-5010, 7/24/36, Bottineau Co., NoDak., 1 mi. s of Eckman. This picture shows the damage done by wind erosion on a well-developed farm. Some fields on this farm have been blown out to a depth of four feet and the resultant drift has ruined the remaining portion. A considerable area has been thus affected where light soils have been worked. SCS photo-Blake"--Printed on back of print.
