In the Right Place at the Right Time for a Grain Binder

A series of random events ends in the preservation of a 1908 Deering grain binder.

Rear view of the binder after pressure washing. It’s not visible in this photo, but in front of the seat is a holder for a whip. A new cloth for the back of the platform will be made, as the old one was deteriorated beyond repair.
