| May/June 1975

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.

Tom Ackerman's 16 HP Aultman Taylor ready for repairs at my place.

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.
