« Harvest Time, York, Pennsylvania, 1880s »

From York, Pennsylvania, a small cabinet card of a harvest scene when the men are taking a break (there is no steam up and the drive belt is not in motion). The tractor is a very nice early model with a diamond stack and full canopy; a young boy stands on it and an auxiliary water tank wagon sits on the right. The lens, even on a bright day when a small aperture is being used, affords sharp focus only in the center of the photograph.
