Hauling a damaged threshing mill up a hill, Mt Biggs Road

Hauling a damaged threshing mill up a hill, Mt Biggs Road

This threshing mill, owned by the Matthews Brothers of Mt Stewart, got out of control when it was on its way to thresh some crops on Mr John Young’s farm, Mt Biggs Road. The damaged engine was hauled up the hill by two traction engines using wire ropes. The mill was repaired on the Matthews’s farm and was operating again within a week. The traction engine on the far left was owned by Matthew Brothers and the other was owned by Gifford and Henson, local contractors.
