Almalund Threashing Show

The annual Almelund Threashing show is in full swing right NOW!

My bride and I stopped by and looked around.

Old Farm Tractors of every kind and vintage were on display.

International Harvester brand was the highlighted brand this year.

 

Here are a few sights of the hundreds to see...

 

 

It is hard to imagine that we fed a nation with this old machinery.  WE worked much longer hours and much harder.

 

If you have never been to an old time farm show...take the time and see what your ancestors did for us.  See how they formed this land and made life easier for us.

 

You will be amazed!

The advancement in the way we bring in the harvest over the past 100 years or so has been amazing.

Good morning William.

I fondly remember riding a Ford model 8 around our farm in Russellville Arkansas.

Thanks for the pictures, William.  Not having grown up around farms these are strange machines to me, yet fascinating.

I remember growing up and using these now outdated machines.  Now one tractor can do the work of 15 of the old ones.

Good morning William. Your pictures are wonderful and the story of days gone by, hits home too.
