Another photo card, this one is a personal favorite. The windmill in the picture still pumps water for cattle. Behind it is an old stone building.
The first settlers to the Nebraska panhandle were very limited as to where the could build their farmsteads. There had to be a dependable easily accessible source of water for the people and the animals. Now you have to remember that in those days they were not able to drill deep wells as we are today. So the preferred homestead was on a creek or by a spring.
The stamped windmill image is done in dark green ink. The stamp is made by B & J's Art Stamps out of Las Cruces, New Mexico. I have been buying their stamps at conventions for a number of years and am a very satisfied customer. Great images and some innovative techniques.
