Seen Better Days

I believe this is an old wooden threshing machine left to rot in a field.
Oh my. That looks really old. I'm not even old enough to remember a threshing machine anything like this. Smile. It is a shame that was not preserved in some museum. It looks like it was a beauty in its day. It still make a wonderful phot. I think it would like good in black and white also.

@henrir Ha Ha Henri, these date back a long way and possible this one has not worked since the 1930's
Invented in 1786 by the Scottish engineer Andrew Meikle, The thresher, machine was used to separating wheat, peas, soybeans, and other small grain and seed crops from their chaff and straw:)

@onewing Thank you Babs, I was out looking for a landscape and noticed this some way off in a field, could not get that close hence the graining produced by over cropping the original image:)

It is a beauty anyway. There’s something about old wooden farm equipment that just pulls at the observer.
