Photo detail

Seventy-five year old Don Powers takes a "Deere" peek back to the past as he stops for a moment to ponder a John Deere 45 combine circa 1950s Tuesday afternoon at the Fairgrounds. Powers ran pull machines---combines pulled by caterpillar tractors---back in his younger days and had paused, while waiting for his wife, to remember his harvest years and the big, green machines that were a part of his life.
