National Geographic : 1935 Jan
THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE 'hotograph by Franklin Adams OCEAN WINDS ARE HARNESSED TO GRIND THE GRAIN OF THE AZORES When the canvas sails are set and the long windmill arms are turning, the miller blows a far carrying blast on a conch to call his customers. They bring their maize or wheat and pay either in cash or in kind. The upper part of a Fayal mill turns on its stone base so that the wings may be set at the most efficient angle. Photograph by Wilhelm Tobien WOODEN WHEELS SING A DISCORDANT DUET Primitive, creaking Azorian vehicles, "singing carts," are being replaced by motor trucks, but many are still in use among the farmers. The boy with the long stick, which he uses as a whip, is glad to pose for the photographer and rest his ears.
