Above: A Best 110 HP engine is shown on this postcard labeled “Farming in the West – A Seventeen furrow steam Plough at Work. (On the Road of a Thousand Wonders.)”
Right: What appears to be a different Best 110 HP engine on a postcard labeled “Steam Harvester at Work in California.”
As well, this postcard says only, “725 Plowing by steam, Ranch life in California.” This appears to be a circa 1900 Holt Junior steam traction engine specially equipped for plowing work.
This postcard showing a 110 HP Best steam traction engine is labeled simply, “1603 – Steam Plowing.”
Like the postcard at top, this one is also labeled “1603 – Steam Plowing.” This could be the same engine shown at top, but without driver extensions. The front of the boiler identifies this as engine no. 181, making its date of manufacture about 1907.
