Farming – Phillipsburg, Missouri – About 1915

scan0346This is a photo of my mother’s first cousin, Reba McMenus (Harrill), taken in Phillipsburg, Missouri.  Look at the age of that…whatever it is!  Don’t know who the man is, and there looks to be another man or boy behind Reba on the right.  The next photo is Reba and her sister, Francie McMenus (Montgomery).  It shows the machinery in full, and it looks like there were reins extending off the front.  Was this pulled by horses?  No idea what sort of machine it could have been.  Anyone have any clues?




  1. I would say that’s a drive belt coming off far side of tractor “PTO drive”….Great Photo of Grandma Reba..Thanks
