Fall Harvest



Today's picture shows an incredible view of a fall harvest. It looks like over 30 horses teamed up to pull this harvester. I did not know such large teams were ever used. The picture is from the early 1900's, and was taken near Spokane, Washington.

  1. Wow, that is incredible! I wonder how hard it was to get all those horses working together?

  2. This is one of the first "combines". It's hard to believe that by the 1940's the self propelled combine was coming into use.
