Here is a picture of a Westinghouse Traction Engine of 1890 vintage. This rig was owned by Ed Swint, whom my father worked for when a young man. This separator was a hand feed but one of the first in the district to have a blower on.

My father, Theodore Comical, is the man with the big hat
standing at the right of the separator. 

I spent 6 years with a threshing rig and as a boy used to run
the big ‘greyhound’ steamers that came to our place to
thresh. lam very interested in steam traction engines.
