Original caption:New York City: "Machine From Mars." A radio broadcast, October 30, of the imaginary landing of a "Machine From Mars," such as shown in this picture, caused panics among listeners throughout the country who were turned to the program War of The Worlds. This picture is the conception of H. G. Wells, author of the original story from which the radio script was adapted, of an imaginary machine on the planet Mars.
