Catalog includes 64 pages - many with high quality illustrations - featuring "The Red River Special" Line.  In 1924 Nichols and Thresher had been in business since 1848 and boasted a business plan that devoted itself to the exclusive development and manufacture of threshing machinery.  They were proud of their crew - stating that most owned his own home and were share holders.  "They are contented and interested in their work" is proudly noted in the forward.  Page 10 features an illustration providing for the process of "modern, clean and successful threshing." Several photos of horse drawn equipment are featured but so is the Nichols-Shepard Oil-Gas Tractor in 20-42 HP size.
