Regular contributor David Babcock has a knack
for coming across period photographs showing the equipment we
collect and love as it was used – literally in its work
It’s easy to forget how important stationary engines were to
rural residents in the early days, mechanical beasts of burden that
could lessen the physical toil of just about any job, on or off the
farm. In this issue David sends in some period shots showing a
variety of old engine-powered cement mixers at work in rural sites
in the Upper Midwest.
