This photo was my dad’s and dates to the 1920s. At the bottom is an old mower, top left is a homemade Model T truck, top right is a Model A, and in the middle is a Canary grass header. My dad, Harold Jorgensen, lived near Poy Sippi, Wis. He sold Canary grass seed to people to grow for horse feed and bedding. With this header he only had to cut the heads and thrash.
