Look no further than the dog in this lithograph and it’s obvious this scene was conceived a very long time ago. With ribs showing through his coat, this pooch clearly makes his own way in the world: no modern-day gravy train for him! And yet he had the good fortune to arrive on the scene in early morning, when this young lad apparently slipped out of the house undetected (and undressed) to fill the water bowl for man’s best friend. 

Had Junior slept in, Fido would likely have bellied up to the trough filled by the action of the Halladay Standard mill shown at back. A product of U.S. Wind Engine & Pump Co., Batavia, Ill., Halladay was long a prominent name on the Great Plains.  

Produced by Milwaukee Lithograph Co., this poster is thought to predate 1890 based on the models featured (Halladay Standard, Halladay Vaneless, U.S. Solid Wheel and the Gem). All four were manufactured by U.S. Wind Engine & Pump Co. FC   

Grateful appreciation is given to Kyle Hohmann, Batavia, Ill., who shared this gem from his collection. For more information, contact Kyle at (630) 986-6016; plowboy5@hotmail.com
