Threshing scene on Wildwood Farm, about 1918

From a hand written note by Edward George Wild (born 1892) (IWW stands for International Workers of the World, a very aggressive labor movement of the time):

Threshing scene about 1918.
Bill Wild is on the steam engine. At far right in front of the four horse team on the grain tank is a Stewart Shock Loader operated by Ray Wild. The shock loader was purchased in an effort to replace field pitchers who were lost as a result of IWW organized labor efforts. The steam engine is a Gaar-Scott and the separator is an Advance Rumley with 40" cylinder requiring 4 men to feed it. The "spike" pitchers are John and Henry Helbling. The blower is blowing straw into a rack to be brought around for fuel for the engine.
