The journal cover shows a harvest scene at the Zoar community (see the article by Philip Webber), circa 1890. Both men and women worked during the grain harvest. This is one of a series of photographs which were made into post cards and sold to visitors during the last years of the Zoar Society’s existence. The photograph is provided courtesy of the Ohio Historical Society.
