1905 18 HP American Abell. Getting belted up to planer mill before the crowds gather. Operated by Murray Lay and Eldon Cage.

OLD AND NEW: This is a strange sight a 1922 Sawyer Massey steam traction engine pulling a 1997 Morris air seeder with a 2 7-foot cultivator. But what seems to be two eras colliding is actually the folks at the Reynolds-Alberta Museum in Wetaskiwin, Alberta, Canada, seeding fall rye during the Harvest Festival in the fall of 1997.
