In this black and white photograph, Clyfford Still's father, John Elmer Still, and an unidentified farmer and woman stand upon a horse-drawn combine machine as it advances across a wheat field near Bow Island, Alberta, Canada. The company's name, Massey-Harris, appears in large block-lettering on the machine's blade. Still, who appears on the far left, wears overalls and holds the horses' reins. Trees line the right background of the otherwise featureless landscape.
