Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

[A windmill with a cable extending to a water tower]

Date: unknown
Creator: unknown
Description: Photograph of a windmill (with a sign attached to it on the left: "THE AERMOTOR CHICAGO") with a cable extending to a tall water tower on the right. A small white building sits directly under the windmill. An image of a bull facing left is standing on top of the water tower. A live bull is on the ground in front of the water tower directly below the cardboard cutout image. A five slat wooden fence runs across the photo behind the windmill and water tower. Shrubs line the opposite side of the fence with farm land in the distance. On lower right corner, extremely faint writing: "38".
