McCormick Deering Type E-M 6 Wheat Binder

This evening, I found a very old piece of our Canadian heritage. This wheat binder is almost 100 years old and was used on a field I presently own near Moncton. Thanks to a small plaque on the relic I was able to find out exactly what it was. We can even see similar models in action on YouTube, hauled by horses or tractors. Here’s the short story of the company that produced it. Like many other major American corporations, it pretty much vanished during the Great Depression.
