A marketing brochure for the atomic power industry in New England linked it to the tradition of "Yankee ingenuity," juxtaposing a photograph of the Maine Yankee plant with one of a traditional water wheel.

The brochure came out in 1980, the same year as one of three unsuccessful referendums to stop the production of nuclear power in the state.
