This classic photo was taken in Ponoka in 1904 and shows the Bittner-Dickau steamer and hand-fed separator. It was one of the first in the district and had just finished the threshing run in the November snow.

Sam Dickau is shown on the horse-drawn water sled that kept the steamer supplied. Also in the picture are Charlie and Fred Dickau, Anton Bittner and his two daughters.
