Header wagon

A wagon used for collecting heads of grain as they were harvested by a Header. One side of the wagon box was higher than the other to keep the grain from overshooting the wagon box while being discharged from the header elevator.

The photo appears to show a header feeding a "traveling thresher,' with a second header following, probably filling a header wagon.
The teamster controlled the mules, steered the header and controlled the levels of the sickle bar that cut the wheat and the drapers that fed cut wheat stocks into the header wagon.
After the sickle has done its work, the heads of the grain, together with the portion of the stalk that has been cut off with them, fall to the rear upon a traveling belt some forty inches broad, which, running up over a shoot projected from the left side of the header, carries the grain out of the header and tips it overboard into a header wagon, which is always in attendance.
