Wheat Harvest



Today's picture shows a wheat harvest in California in 1907. It looks like 5 teams of combiners each with over 20 horses. This certainly was not a mom and pop operation.

  1. I am in awe of this picture. I never knew this had existed.

  2. Amazing!
    I really like how the "skinners" get to drive from their perch way out at the end of the little seat beams, almost over the horses. Must have been a fun job, or relatively so.
    Thanks!
