Hi folks - new poster here.
I'm trying to identify the piece of equipment that the woman is pushing in the attached picture. I'm assuming it's a mower, but I've been unable to find a way to identify the type, and therefore confirm that it's not something else. The white box section at the front is the thing that's throwing me off. (I don't know what else it'd be if it's not a mower... )
Where the woman is standing where my house (and others) now stands. The year is (probably) after 1858 but before 1903. (In the larger picture this is cropped from there's a large house in the background that was dynamited in 1903.)
Any help on the identification would be much appreciated!
