Reynolds-Alberta Museum: part three

Although the great variety of automobiles and aircraft were impressive in their own right, I was particularly excited by the two giant excavators displayed majestically on the open prairie field:  a 1917 "Bucyrus Class 24 Dragline", and a 1929 "Bucyrus-Erie 200-B Stripping Shovel". Both were essential to the mining sites where they operated, and are rare specimens of their kind.
