We are assuming that the building with the sign in the

A threshing and baling scene near Port Royal, Pennsylvania, July
1911. Case threshing outfit with Kinzer swinging stacker. Huber
engine on the baler. We do not know the the make of the baler. This
is unusual in that it is a ‘western’ scene in the East .At
that time and place threshing was not done in the field. The
threshing and baling in one operation was an experiment. It worked
providing they controlled the speed of the feeding. I want my
mid-western friends to note the ‘bundle’ wagon. The man on
the engine cab is my father. — Elmer.
