On the other side of Washington State and into Idaho, lies the Palouse country, with rolling hills of wheat, embroidered with small stands of evergreen woods. Beautiful country, and it takes a different kind of combine to do the harvest in such hilly country. Here’s what it looked like near Spokane around 1910, when the combine had to be pulled by horses — lots of horses. Shows what mechanization has meant. Sorry about the music, turn your volume down.
