Let’s do another throwback and head back to 1915.

This photo shows a threshing scene on Charlie Arthur’s farm, on the west side of Arthur Drive and north of 28th Avenue.

Charlie Arthur is pictured with his family and friends on top of a pile of bagged grain, likely oats.

A steam tractor is on the right and a threshing machine on the left.
