Threshing Rice on O. R. Johnson's Rice Farm

Description: Photograph of a group of men outdoors threshing rice on a rice farm one mile east of El Campo (this information is repeated on the back of the photograph's mat in hand-written text). The farm belonged to O. R. Johnson. The actual thresher is on the far right of the image, a large machine with several wheels and a conical pipe on its leftmost side. To the left, there are horses, some being ridden, while others appear to be harnessed to various equipment. Several bales of rice surround them on the floor. Hand-written text on the back of the photograph in blue ink reads: "Threshing rice on O. R. Johnson's rice farm 1 mile east of El Campo Tex. H. J. Berndt. Danevang, Texas. Please return to A. E. Berndt Danevang Tex. CIRCA 1912."
