Default J. I. Case Pictures

When you are looking for something, why is it you find the stuff you weren't really looking for?
Here are some interesting Case threshing shots. Don't have a clue where they were taken but likely Western Canada. Perhaps someone will recognize a long lost cousin?
Without really looking at them, four of them seemed to be of the same engine, what with the cylinder oil cans warming up on the feed water heater. But they are obviously different engines.
Here are the first two. I really like the first one. A real working scene with all the clutter of pails, cans and hoses!
Case expert help with the engines please?

The first two here are good candid scenes of a working engine. There is a big, wide feeder on the old threshing mill so lots of power needed!
The third one looks like a more modern photo but maybe not? A pretty sharp engine, done up but with enough oil and crud on her to make her look really nice.

Photos 1,2,and 5 look like a 65hp. I like the funnel riding on the boiler. It looks like it's burning straw, it has an ash cooling pan in front of the firebox. The engineer may be pushing the ash out in the first photo, not reliving himself as if first looks.

Photos 3 and 4 look like a 25hp or 75hp depending on how it was tagged.

Thanks Tom,
Yes, I thought the same thing - that he got caught in the act! But that makes sense that he would be raking out the pan! I like the candid shots - working engines, hot and dirty!

Here is a picture of the grand-daughter of Case, shot at the Rushville Indiana Show.
This was a huge Case turnout & great show like always.

Fellow Stakker SDP came across this neat picture.
It was taken at the Milton, Ontario show, sometime in the 60s no doubt. We are assuming it is the 75 Case that still comes to the SteamEra show that is in a private museum near Guelph now. Note the heavy rear wheels!
It had several owners here but the chap operating it is identified as being from our neighbour, New York State. And of course, I have misplaced his name right now!
There is quite a story on this engine but I don't know enough of it to start telling - some if it involved a barge ride out of the north bush? Anyone?
Thanx SDP!
