Pierre Babineau, Moncton, N.B., Canada and his neighbors threshing buckwheat last fall. Pierre uses machinery from his collection to cut and harvest buckwheat the old-fashioned way. The thresher, manufactured by Halls Mfg., Summerside, Prince Edward Island, dates to the 1920s. Powering the thresher is a 1930 6 hp International Harvester Type M gas engine. Photo by Edgar Babineau.
