This black and white photographic postcard features farmland during the harvest. A tractor with the number 4 on the front pulls a harvester/reaper, an early form of pull-type combine to cut the wheat into rows instead of piles. Then men follow behind a another person on a horse is in the background. The person holds and umbrella to stay out of the sun. Two men stand on the tractor and look towards the wheat that is being cut. Uncut wheat is in the foreground and printed text is on the lower part of the card.
