I've never seen mention of this in the magazines. It is a picture of a historical plaque about 1 mile north of Climax, Michigan which is located about 12 or 15 miles West of Battle Creek and on the west side of the road which runs north and south. This was the second attempt to get a decent picture of it. Apparently the combine was invented before most people realize.

Any one of several engines can be belted up to this mill. Paul Campbell of Strafford, Missouri owns and shows this fine 18 HP Advance Rumely Steamer # 15228, built and delivered new to Macon, Missouri in 1923. These pictures all were taken at the 1974 Ozark Steam Engine Association Show in Sjpringfield, Missouri.

In memory of the late Milton Hershey known as Milty of Willow Street, Lancaster County and threshing crew, threshing on our farm in the year 1930. Milton Hershey in the engine in one picture and standing on the wheel in the other picture.
