Here is a photo of a Joliet sheller owned by my dad’s cousin. He pulled it with a Heider tractor on steel. He let it sit where he last used it until he needed it next. It is shown here on the end of our corn crib and I am posing for my mom’s box camera.

Rock Island was a seller of Joliet shellers for many years. That may have been a package purchase. Very nice sheller, I'd like to have one myself.
