This 50 hp. J. I. Case Steam Traction Engine, Number 32564 was made in 1915. More of this model were made and sold than any other steam traction engine by any manufacturer. Originally sold in Tennessee and later purchased and restored by the late A. Glen Thomas of Cumming, Georgia. In excellent mechanical condition, it is now the property of U.S.A. of Yesterday near Dundee, Florida, on Highway 27, between Lake Wales and Haines City.

The young lady, Mary Jane Mixon, actually drives and operates this engine when regular engineer, Bert Rugenstein, is not on duty. Courtesy of U.S.A. of Yesterday on NS 27, Dundee, Florida 33838.Sent in by Earl L. Smith.

Quite a few of the old timers will recognize Pete Rose, Al Trego, Harold Ottaway, Heini Bomhoff, Art Kosted and Russel H of man. Several more of the crew had already left. Hope to thresh again next year if we can get a crew hired. Courtesy of Younkman & Sons, North Newton, Kansas 67117.
