When my grandfather bought the farm here in North Carolina in 1878, in the upstairs of the big barn was a threshing machine similar to that shown in these photos. There was a door in a stable downstairs where the belt from the horsepower went to the threshing machine. I remember, as a child, seeing the machine. It was light blue and larger than the one in the photo. I would like information about who made the thresher in the photo. I bought it at an estate sale.
