Southern Scenes

The pastoral scene on the following two pages was taken about eight years ago by Southern's photo section. The scene, an agricultural area near Front Royal, Va., caught the attention of Tom Emmons, chief photographer, and Howard Olmstead, photographer, both of Southern. The barn, white horse and the farmer on, the tractor are enough to make you want to take a drive in the country.
