Photo Number 1180

This is a photo from the flea market in Wadena Minnesota.

Two, little gals with hats Wadena Flea Market

Kind of a strange photo.  A man standing beside some piece of steam powered machinery and two little girls showing off their hats in bare feet.

    "Apparently wagons of sorghum were unloaded atop the hill behind the mill where the canes were crushed and the juice then flowed into steam-heated cookers, or something like that."

  5. What an odd conglomeration of images all in one photograph. The man and machine could be a fascinating study all by themselves, as well as the two girls on their own. Together, this is really a strange mash up, lol.

  6. I just noticed that "steam boiler" has a big metal tractor wheel on the right (and presumably on the left) side.
