Strange machine from the 1920’s – Outo kone 1920-luvulta


I got a bunch of old 6 x 9 cm negatives. I scanned those. Most of them were family snapshots taken around 1920 mainly in Mäntäsälä and also elsewhere in Finland.

One image was something different: a caterpillar (crawler) pulling … but what? And where? I haven’t found an answer yet. Any ideas?

Sain äskettäin nipun vanhoja 6 x 9 cm negatiiveja, jotka skannasin. Useimmat olivat perhekuvia Mäntsälästä tai matkoilta eri puolilta Suomea, otettu noin vuoden 1920 tienoilla.

Yksi kuva poikkesi muista. Siinä vedetään telaketjutraktorilla … mutta mitä? Ja missä (jossakin Mäntsälän seudulla)? Toistaiseksi kukaan ei ole osannut vastata. Osaatko sinä?

    Could it be a portable steam engine to be shared between rural townships for driving static machinery such as threshers, pumps and so on? Or…perhaps the boiler of a steam train blew up and this is the replacement? Brrr…so cold and bleak. I’d hate to be one of those guys.
