The crew gathers after threshing wheat near the town of Arlington, in Gilliam County. The title written on the back calls it "thrashing", a spelling common in the early 20th century. Sophisticated for its day, the power equipment shown here was clearly much faster (and produced a cleaner product) than older hand methods of treading out or flailing. Nevertheless, you can see it still required a lot of labor. Not seen in this photo are the power sources -- likely steam-powered tractors that used belts to drive the threshing machine. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
