Transcription of text
on front: Gift of Mrs W Keen Photo Mrs A Harrison No1. / This is one of the different ways to pull out stumps. Note the winch / made out of pair of mower wheels worked with a long alternate lever / The hauling rope is taken from the winding down passed through / a strong block and fastened to a solid anchor. The block is fastened / with a strong rope to what is to be shifted and the winding / started up. This yoke gives twice the power and half the speed.
on back: The best way to get a traction engine / up a steep rise or out of a hole is to fasten / a good strong block with a good piece of / wire rope to an anchor in front. Run / off enough rope to reach to the block / and back to the front of the boiler secure / it in block. Give enough steam to / move and you will land at the anchor / If it is not a heavy pull fasten / direct to the anchor. Make sure the / rope is on the drum the right way or / you will be pulling against the / differential / See the other card No2
