Title: Tall-tale Postcard: We Never Stop
Description: A man is driving an old-fashioned car with three women passengers on a road littered with cows. The driver has hit a cow with the car, causing it to fly into the air. The cow in midair appears to be a drawn element, not from a photographed source. Red text in the upper portion bears the inscription, "Scene on the road near Madison, Wis."
