I found two pictures of old farm machinery from the Pampa, Texas, area, creating the dust bowl in Pampa. The one at top is a Rumely OilPull; the one below is a Buffalo Pitts steam engine.

Editor’s note: The photo of the Buffalo Pitts is an early postcard. On the back of the card (which had never been mailed) a description of the scene was typed in German. Translated, it reads: “Breaking the Pampas with a steam disc plow. 20 to 22 hectares every day.”
