William S. Van Tassel and his team with little Esther tagging along. Photographed by Gertrude Wood Van Tassel on their farm in the town of Wilna, NY. 'Dad prided himself for being an efficiency expert on the repair of corn binders. Those were the days when folks were poor and neighbors exchanged work and loaned machinery. There were Threshing Gangs & Silo Fillers when the neighbors wife would help my mother feeding a gang of at least 12 hungry men.' - Esther
