Friend called saying "They were tearing down a 109 year old restaurant and to bring camera."

Big Caterpillar doing its thing. Only two people for crew: Operator and the guy spraying water to keep dust down. All over in one day's work. Even took the palm trees down with the thing by twisting them off near ground.

More interesting was I was the only guy shooting the show with a camera. Media showed up and they used their cellphones. I saw the local paper's photos later online from one woman running around with her cellphone. Good 'nuff for them I guess.

Place has been abandoned for some time. About a dozen homeless people moved into their basement, but they all scattered with the large Cat showed up.

Massey Ferguson 9560 Combine Harvester by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

A Massey Ferguson 9560 combine harvester parked up outside a machinery dealer in Brookton, Western Australia. Presumable for sale.

The marketplace has changed from my days in the business in the ‘80s. Massey Ferguson wasn’t a known brand in the wheatbelt then.

Deering #3 Reaper and Binder by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

This reaper and binder is part of a historical farm machinery display put together by the Shire of Brookton in Brookton. It was manufactured in 1920.

It was horse-drawn for cutting a standing crop, then making sheaves of hay.

Thank you to Mr Des Pike for donating it.

6 Furrow Mouldboard Plough #2 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Manufactured by the State Implement Works, Fremantle in 1930. It was used to prepare paddocks prior to seeding.

The State Implement and Engineering Works was an initiative of the Department of Agriculture in 1912-1913 to manufacture agricultural machinery. The State Implement and Engineering Works commenced operating on 1 July 1913 following amalgamation with the Fremantle Workshops (administered by Public Works Department).
The Works largely manufactured agricultural implements until about 1930 when it changed to general engineering works.

Thank you to the Stedman Family for donating it and for the Shire of Brookton for putting the display together.
