This picture of a 32-mule team pulling a harvester was taken at Red Bluff, California in 1905. The driver was Alva Kemp, who was still living in Red Bluff in 1970 at the age of 84. We received the picture from Dr. S. M. R. Reynolds, professor emeritus, College of Medicine, University of Illinois. He found it in cleaning out his study at Lancaster, Pennsylvania, prior to moving to Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It was obtained by him from Keith Lingen felter, of Red Bluff, originally from Mifflin County, Pennsylvania.
