A threshing crew in the Traymor district during the harvest of 1895.

"From the beginning of settlement the need for labour was a constant concern for homesteaders. While it was individual families who claimed a homestead and broke the land, at harvest time it was a different story. With a short window of good weather it was always a rush to get the crop off and thousands of workers were needed to help."
