Both of the above pictures are of the same outfit only at
different settings. They were taken on the Loine Freeman farm which
is now Mt. Hope Airport. They were taken in 1940. Mr. Freeman had
to have the crop off by a certain date as the contractor’s
machinery was already preparing part of the farm for the
runways.

The tractor is an Imperial sold by the Robert Bell Thresher
Company of Seaforth, Ontario and the thresher is a Robert Bell made
at Seaforth, Ontario. It was owned by the late Melvin Reed of Mt.
Hope and he is seen standing on the separator. The other tractor is
an Allis Chalmers (United) and a McCormick Deering 17 x 22. Hay
Press is owned by Hilliard Twiss who is pictured feeding the
baler.
