This ca. 1910 photograph shows George Hilderbrand operating a Hart Parr tractor and plow at his wheat farm near Wasco, in Sherman County. Hilderbrand, who moved to Sherman County in 1887, owned at least a thousand acres of farmland and also worked as a clerk for the local school district. He may have owned one of the first gasoline-powered tractors in the county. The image was taken by William Raymond, a Moro-based photographer who worked between 1899 and 1935.
