This snapshot of time as much as anything else provides lots to interest, the wonderful machine with the traction engine behind, the gent in short shorts with white socks and court shoes and the clothing of the people around!
I am surprised we did not get a model number and make for that big threshing machine. There is still time - keep up the search.
Breaking news, beachcomberaustralia Reports, I Tried to find out about this threshing machine, and it might be made by Savages of Kings Lynn, Norfolk, England, who went on to make fairground equipment. Difficult to tell as every machine was probably different.
I am not convinced.
More Breaking news from OwenMacC he tells us that the traction engine is a Burrell from the early 1900's
