  • Dakota scene
    This wonderful picture was given to me by a lady who said her husband had four rigs. As so often happens there is no name on the picture and if there was a letter it got separated from the picture. We think it is a Dakota scene. If the owner or anyone el

The portable saw mill regularly featured at the Mt. Pleasant Reunion. It is owned & operated by Tom Traut and is a Jackson Mill. They changed engines frequently but at this particular moment it is powered by a double Nichols & Shepard. This is a feature that never fails to draw a good audience. Only part of the folks looking at the mill work are able to be shown in this photo.

The outfit of Mr. Harvey Hoffman, Rheems, Pennsylvania. Taken in 1910 near Mt. Joy, Pennsylvania. It is a Peerless 'T' engine, Peerless Thresher and an Ohio Baler. Mr. Hoffman's thresher is 60 years old and the baler is 50 years old. He got the machinery from his father, the late Samuel Hoffman, Mt. Joy, Pa., Who did much of the threshing for the farmers in this part of the country. Harvey is standing on the baler in this picture. Note the dust collector on this machine. They were quite popular in many sections in the East where barn threshing was the rule.
