Found in an antique store in Texas. Written on the back: "The Prause home north, northeast of Yoakum". This snapshot resembles some of my family's photos that were taken in the 1950s, so it may date from that era.

A photo of William Dettmer at The Cascade Threshing Company. The end of the Cascade Threshing Company run in 1920. The company was organized in 1919 with the following members: Dick Kirchhoff, John Dill, Ben Gibson, Herman Mitchel, Earl Towle, Chris Johnson, William Dettmer, Andrew Olsen, and Paul E. Gerard. This 25 horse power Reeves Engine, water wagon, and 36x56 Aultman-Taylor separator were purchased in 1919, second hand, in the Tekamah, Nebraska vicinity. After using one year, the separator was discarded and a new 36x56 Minneapolis separator, shown in this picture, was purchased. Pulling 9-16 inch plows in the Tekamah Gumbo Bottoms. The engine was a cross compound equipped for plowing. It had heavy gears, each traction wheel was 3 feet wide, the front wheels, each 16 inches wide. A 3 inch siphoning hose, carried over the cab when not in use, enabled the engine to take water from the water wagon on the move. 2 side tanks and a rear tank under the coal bunk would hold over a ton of coal. It took about 3-12 barrel tanks of water to fill the boiler, the supply tanks and the water wagon, a ton of coal, everything greased, a good hot fire, and the engine was ready to roll. The engine weighed 15 tons empty. William Dettmer, (kneeling and holding the collie mascot) Max, was the separator man; John Kirchhoff, the water-boy and by the front wheel, Paul Gerard, engineer.
