This photo was taken in the 1920s or ’30s in Perkins County, South Dakota. My father, N.L. Hansen, is on the binder. The tractor is a McCormick-Deering 10-20. I think he’s cutting flax. I have the long steering rod and the binder but it needs restoration.
My father was born in Denmark. He came to Yankton, South Dakota, in 1916. Later he joined the U.S. Army and served in World War II. He came to Perkins County in March 1925. He came to Isabel, South Dakota, by train with some of his machinery.
