Harvesting near Eureka, South Dakota

Photograph courtesy of Duane A. Bender, Southlake, Texas


This photograph, printed on postcard stock, circa 1910-1930, shows a harvest crew, near Eureka, South Dakota, opening a wheat field with a six horse-pushed " header box" with sickle blades. Instead of tied-bundle sheaves gathered into "shocks" and "perleys", this cut-grain is conveyed upward into wagon box for "stack-threshing".
