Lovely Photos of Industrial Things

Also from NPR, Susan Stamberg reports:
"Margaret Bourke-White was one of the most famous photojournalists of the 20th century. A Bourke-White picture made the cover of the very first issue of Life magazine. She was one of four staff photographers on the first masthead, the only woman on staff, and invented the photo essay for the magazine." (plow blades to the left, 1930-----1930!!?)

I see she was married to Georgia's own Erskine Caldwell. Once a hugely best-selling author, now even the "What's New" section of "The Erskine Caldwell Website"
was last updated 12/17/03. Fame is such a fleeting thing. One day a young kid with a Dreamweaver template looking for some extra credit builds a cyber-shrine to your life and works, the next it's all just cache.
