Here are a few pictures of what we did on my farm at Grande
Prairie, Alberta, on September 23, 1995, a very nice day.

The top picture shows the separator, a 28′ Red River
Special. The man on top of the separator is Mr. Ed Carlson from
Dawson Creek, British Columbia. I don’t know the man feeding
the horses. Notice the beam scales on back of the thresher. You had
to have these if you were doing custom work.

The center photo is engine #13231. It shows a 20 HP but it is
really a 22 HP as discovered by our boiler inspector. The man at
the throttle is David McLean, his father Gordon is behind him and
yours truly on steps.

In the bottom picture we have finished the job and some of the
children have started to work on the straw pile.
