While looking through a family photo album, I found this unlikely picture. A Rumely OilPull pulling the water wagon for a steamer would be very unusual! It must date to the early 1900s.

In the 1930s, I remember seeing an OilPull pulling a separator down the road. I remember thinking to myself that the tractor was not a steam engine. The photo was taken in southeast Iowa, east of Mediapolis (my old hometown).
