We don't seem to have an original copy of this photo. The caption is in German but it says
 they were threshing wheat (weizen dreschen) in Sept. 1918. The names of some of the people in the picture are:

Louis Hoelscher
John Sturwold
Joseph Schulze
Frank Schroeder
Frank Broering
Henry Borchers
Anton Hilgefort
John Bender
Martin Larger

I leave it to the reader to pick them out or anybody else known.

The notice at the bottom says, "John Sturwold ist mein vater. (John Sturwold is my father)
