Let's Talk Rusty Iron

Threshing oats at the Moore farm on Aug. 12, 1947. The Belle City separator can be seen in the background with the baler in front. The man in the very center, wearing a cap, is my uncle, Chuck Townsend. My late cousin, Peg Townsend, recorded in her diary that we got 401-1/2 bushels of wheat, 396 bushels of oats and 800 bales of straw that day.
