    Looking at that LONG flat belt keeping the steam boiler well away from the pile of dried grain stalks makes me wonder, How many times that caught that pile on fire before they went to the LONG belt?

    Although you can't tell by their faces, I would bet those workers were happy to get to wear their Sunday best for the photo...

    It's great how Morgan seamlessly switched from steam to electricity...

    In reference to photo #2000 and the short discussion following; Today is the birthday of John Froelich, inventor of the gas-powered tractor.

    His inspiration came from the fires caused by steam powered threshing machines.
