A Quick Break

All aboard an Advance Steam Traction Engine!  These gentlemen probably enjoyed a hiatus from harvest work to snap a photo around this engine with a compound cylinder.   This photograph is likely to have been taken in the Badger-DeSmet area.

Are steam engines, tractors, and the evolution of farming machinery interests to you?  Stop into the Ag Museum Store and have a look at Full Steam Ahead by David Erb and Eldon Brumbaugh or The Agricultural Tractor compiled by R.B. Gray. 1987:084:004, Harry Hodges
