Last weekend I attended the Clark County Genealogical Society in Vancouver, Washington. The day before, Ginny Majewski and I visited the Clark Co Historical Society (housed in the old Carnegie Library). They had wonderful stuff on display there! Recognize this?
Now perhaps you cannot read the sign, but it’s a corn sheller! Yep, new-fangled, time-saving corn sheller. BUT you still had to harvest the corn, peel the cobs, and by hand insert the cobs one at a time into this gizmo and turn the crank.
Ah, yes, the good old days, right?
