Much as I like the abundance of new picture quizzes, the repeated usage of the same stock images kind of cheapens them a little.

I agree. Quizmaster, I am a collage artist who works with imagery that, for obvious reasons, I have to be POSITIVE is in the public domain. If you toss me an email, I am happy to provide you with a few useful sources besides Pixbaby and Wikipedia (for instance, most US Federal Government sources are good)!

Yes, the instructions read "state depicted", not "state from where the photo was taken", unless you're trying to argue that half of the Mississippi River in the photo belongs to Illinois. Give it up.

The last picture could have been multiple places. Because of Steinbeck the most obvious answer is the one accepted but both neighbors to the north and both states to the west were all affected by the event. A couple of little known facts about the event. There were more migrants from the state to the east and the insulting nickname was aimed at the sharecroppers that came from the east of the relatively small area affected by the event depicted.

Not only is it the most obvious answer, but it's also the correct one. Click on the picture and check the image source.

Yes it is Cimarron county but without going to the source there is no way to verify the picture in question. That picture could have been taken in at least 6 states. Cimarron county also sees a fair number of tornadoes. If the picture was a tornado photographed there does it make it the only place that you could see it? That was my original point, there is nothing in the picture that makes it identifiable to just one state. I never said that it needed to be corrected just that it was a multi state event even though there is a fair number of people who only associate it with one. I was just trying to give people some additional information about the event.

And if you are familiar with the '84 games, you will recognize that this is not a depiction of the distinctive architecture of the LA Coliseum.

17/18, I forgot where White Sands was. I only knew Virginia because I just did the Virginia quiz that had the same picture.
