Description: 

The three different presidents of the Merchants' and Farmers' Bank - Old Bayard Sartoris, Major de Spain and Flem Snopes - are depicted driving about Yoknapatawpha over the decades between the horse-drawn carriage and the 1940s looking at "the cotton farms they represented the mortgages on" (174) or were "in process of foreclosure" on (243). This icon represents those farms, which in turn can represent the economic struggles of most of the county's inhabitants for most of the history that Faulkner's fictions describe.
