Some American history in pictures

The photo above, taken sometime in the 1920s or 30s, depicts Border Patrolmen apparently trying to apprehend a suspect who is straddling the border, attempting to re-enter Mexico.
I found this picture at How To Be a Retronaut, which is a pictorial blog with a lot of very interesting stuff from past eras. The photo above is apparently part of a National Geographic collection. I recommend clicking over to the Retronaut blog and seeing the whole set of photos from the 20s and 30s, which depict people from just about every state, in various activities. It's a colorful essay on life in the USA at that time.
