Case 36x58--No. 42054. My brother and I bought this separator in 1905 when we were boys and used it until 1944. Forty seasons. Threshed almost 21/2 million bushels of grain. Still in good condition. Have it in a shed.

Walter Williams, one of the last steamĀ  threshermen in England and the very last one in these parts. Here he is on his Marshall (running like a clock) having a chat with Michael Salmon, himself a driver although not like Walter. He does not do it for a living--only as a Hobby.
