Caption: Dust storm, Texas, 1935. Wall of dust approaching the town of Spearman, Texas, USA. Years of poor agricultural practice and drought led to wind erosion of the topsoil in the Great Plains of midwest America during the 1930's. This ecological disaster was known as the 'Dust Bowl' and caused devastation through loss of crops, livelihood and homelessness. Photographed on 14 April 1935.
