American Windmills: An Album of Historic Photographs
From the earliest days of European settlement, Americans have cherished the sight of a windmill - an instantly recognizable feature of the American landscape. Boasting nearly two hundred images, this book is the first devoted to photographs illustrating historic wind machines throughout North America.
T. Lindsay Baker, an expert historian on windmills, has written about wind-power history for twenty-five years. His album contains historic images captured by professional windmiller B. H. "Tex" Burdick and from corporate archives of windmill manufacturers. It depicts windmills in a wide range of settings and uses - not only on ranches and farms but also alongside railroads, in industry, and even in urban areas.
The photos chosen for this book illustrate windmill manufacture, distribution, and use in all regions of the United States, with an emphasis on the Great Plains. They take us into the factories to show how commercial windmills were mass-produced and marketed - and also into rural America to show how inventive individuals designed their own homemade wind machines, often recycling farm materials to build them.
An introduction by photography historian John Carter provides an overview of the importance of windmills in rural life and Americans' compulsion for photographing them.
