Steam Tractor

And then there was the marvel of new development, the steam tractor. With a ready supply of wood to burn, the steam tractor would have been a natural fit at a wood mill in early days. I can only marvel at what our ancestors were able to do with equipment that appears to be so antiquated by our standards. A different style of life, with different expectations. An interesting comparison when we think about it.
