Custom Threshing Crew-Circa 1900
The picture shows Charles Henry Michel & his threshing crew. The threshing machine was used for threshing wheat, oats, barley & clover seed. The grain was cut with a mower, loaded into wagons & carried to the location of the thresher, it was then pitched into the thresher. Looking at the thresher you will see what looks like a tube coming back over the thresher, this is the tube through which the grain was discharged from the storage bin into the wagon to be hauled to the grain storage bin back at the barn. The thresher was moved from one field to another by a large steam engine. My Great Uncle said my Great Grandfather was single at the time & traveled doing custom work for other people & a lot of times they let him sleep in their barn at night. They would also feed him.
