Combine, Truck, and Team of Harvesters, circa 1950 (2017.13.183). A combine harvests grain in three steps of reaping, threshing, and winnowing. The Moulton Ranch ran primarily sheep and cattle herds, but also had an agricultural operation. Lewis Moulton had a grain warehouse in El Toro and citrus orchards in San Juan Capistrano.
