on back: Mayflower II buit at Brixham, England by Project Mayflower; sailed from Plymouth, England to Plymouth, Massachusetts by Capt. Villiers in April 1957, a gift of the people of Great Britain to the people of the United States as a gesture of Anglo-American friendship. Mayflower II will be berthed permanently at Plimoth Plantation Eel River Site in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
on back: DESERT PROSPECTOR. The desert prospector is the world's greatest optimist. With his trusty burro (Spanish for small donkey) he plods over the desert waste lands. Of the number of prospectors this photographer has known they seem to be more interested in going from one place to another than to look for a strike. The burro will carry food and water for 10-12 days. Of mines that are lost, if they were ever found in the first place, seem to have been found while looking for lost burros. Present day prospectors use four-wheel drive to cover the desert country. . . .M.P.
