WINNOWING MACHINE

Winnowing Machine

exhibition number: Agriculture 8.3

In the winnowing machine a fan blows the husks and straw away and the grain descends across a sieve through which the dirt falls.

Winnowing machine

Like a number of agricultural implements, the name of the agent or shop who sold the winnowing machine, rather than the firm that made it, is prominent. Williams and White had a large iron-monger's shop in Baker Street, Aberystwyth.
