A photo of the thresher my brother and I operated for over 20
years at East Aurora, New York. Our route extended over the. better
part of four townships. It was first operated by a large 4 cylinder
cross-motor Case which was traded for a W-6 McCormack-Deering, a
very fast and good tractor. The separator wore out 3 tractors and
is at present running on another route farther south where its too
hilly for combines. We also had a Int. Harvester baler and corn
shredder plus a large silo filler. Before I ran with my brother for
ourselves I worked for another man who had a 4-5 Int. Kerosene
Mogul. I have never owned a steam outfit though when I was a boy
they were all we had around here and I always liked them very much.
I belong to the New York State Steam Engine Assn., and attended
their first show.
