I don't recall that there has been many pictures of ROBINSON engines in the ALBUM so am sending you this one.

This picture was taken by my wife while we were threshing at the Walter Wartick farm 3 miles south east of Columbus, Illinois on August 11, 1935. I was owner and operator of this engine at that time.

This photo was taken October, 1967 on the farm of Martin Wolter, my son-in-law. He has one of the most modern dairy barns in this part of the country. The silo is 18 feet by 60 feet They had a farm tractor belted to the blower but didn't have enough power to blow the ensilage up, so we brought our 22 H.P. Advance Rumely down. It took just five minutes to unload one of the big wagons. Everybody was surprised to see how easy the engine handled it.

This is a stereoscope picture and is a new feature of this magazine and will have a different picture each issue. If you will cut it out on the heavy lines and paste on light cardboard with rubber cement you will have a three dimensional picture you can view in the old fashioned steroscope viewer glasses. If you like it let Roy know and us too! - Anna Mae
