Photo Friday, July 23, 2021: Cyclone at Alta Vista 1905

It’s Photo Friday.  Today’s photo is a rare view of a tornado over Alta Vista, Kansas, dated May 13, 1905.  This view is unusual in that it resembles a stereoview card, however in fact it’s only two views presented on the same backing board, showing the tornado in two locations over the Wabaunsee County town.

This photo by W. A. McCoy of Alta Vista includes two views of a cyclone at Alta Vista on May 13, 1905.

Today’s photo was taken by Alta Vista photographer, W. A. McCoy who worked in southwest Wabaunsee County in the early 20th century.
