FLASHBACK Cutting It Close Mowing among the megaliths at Stonehenge must have been a mighty task. England's Salisbury Plain-home to the famous standing stones as well as hundreds of other prehistoric sites-is one of the largest expanses of rare chalk grassland left in Europe. The man in this 1950s photograph (never previously published in the Geo graphic) was unavailable for comment on his labors. His name did not accompany the image, and his origins, much like Stonehenge's, remain a mystery. -Margaret G. Zackowitz t Flashback Archive Find all the photos at ngm.com.
