The photo above was made from an old 3 inch square glass
lantern slide. Inscribed on the slide was ‘plow used by D.
Webster (wood) with steam gang plow.
‘ The picture zeros in
on the Geiser Manufacturing Company’s then brand new steam
powered gang plow. To accent the contrast, what was alleged to be
an old wooden plow used by Daniel Webster is part of the display.
Note the small sign in the background, which indicates the location
of ‘The World Famed Faultless grubber and stump puller.’
Our thanks to John K. Hooper, R.D. 2, Newville, PA 17241, who is
the owner of the slide, and sent us this photo. Mr. Hooper points
out that we had a photo in our November/December 1999 issue (page
18) of what appears to be the same equipment from a slightly
different vantage point. That photo, supplied by Robert Rhode, had
been taken at the 1904 St. Louis Exposition, so we presume that
this was the same venue.
