In PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM: **qc917.9471 C6, pg. #47
In: Scenes of Santa Clara Valley
In the right foreground corner sits a rectangular case; in the middle distance stands the combined harvester pulled by a team of horses; two men are at the front of the harvester; on the back end of the harvester stand two men, one a worker and the other dressed in a suit and hat; the harvester stands in a field of grain.
"It cuts, thrashes, cleans, sacks - one hundred acres of grain averaging 40 bushels per acre-daily. We have a harvester, propelled by three horses, employing three men that will cut about 15 acres a day. There is much room for improvement in our 'harvesting machinery.'"
