Guys, after our thanksgiving dinner today we sat down and spent a couple hours dropping a bunch of old glass slides in the projector. All of them are of the Racine tractor works, many of them showing foundry work and making crank shafts. Took a picture of the old factory sign which is one of a few in color. One showed a guy testing rods with a Rockwell tester, and the calender was dated July 1940. Someday I want to take them all in and get prints made.third party image

That would be an interesting set of slides. I found a cheaper alternative to reformat 35 mm slides - I bought a small slide scanner at a local Staples (stationery chain store), for about $70. I scanned about 2,000 slides my dad had taken over the years and they turned out real good. It uses the same memory card as a digital camera so you can download them to your computer and print them, whatever. I priced out having a local camera shop do them and the price was way more than I could afford. It took a little time but was a good way to use up some cold winter days.

In this area of Wisconsin, most crops are raised to support livestock production or dairy herds in various forms. Corn products were harvested for grain, and for ensilage (we always just called it 'silage'). Silo Filling Time On dairy farms back in the 30's and into the first half of the 40's, making of corn silage was done with horses pulling a corn binder producing tied bundles of fresh, sweet-smelling corn plants, nice green leaves with ear; the ...
