McCormick decked with flowers – McCormick fleurie

The McCormick harvester and twine binder, maufactured in 1881, was the first binder which tied the bundles with twine. Jean Michel remembers seeing them in the sixties on his grandparents’ farm. This one, in Onzain, just across the Loire from Château de Chaumont is decorated with fllowers every summer.
La faucheuse-lieuse McCormick, fabriquée dès 1881, était la première lieuse à utilser du fil de chanvre. Jean Michel se rappelle d’en avoir vu fonctionner dans les années soixante à la ferme de ses grandparents. Celle-ci, à Onzain, de l’autre côté de la Loire du château de Chaumont est fleurie tous les étés.

@William. Yes, it’s a great way to bright up an old machine.
@Stuart, It’s on the right when going from Chaumon to Onzain, after the underpass before the village of Onzain.
