Grange de Lings, Farmyard

This is a typical autumn or winter farmyard scene of corn (wheat or barley) threshing.

A traction engine is providing the power for the threshing machine or drum and also for the elevator lifting straw to the stack in the background.

No fewer than 13 men can be seen in the labour-intensive operation of converting sheaves into grain, straw and chaff.

In the foreground is a horse-drawn flat roller.
