The postcard shows farmers threshing rice harvest. Threshing is separating the rice seeds from the stalks and is usually done by beating the rice heads on a slotted bamboo platform. This is a typical scene in the provinces where rice is the main produce during harvest season (usually summer). The only difference nowadays is that farmers now use machines to thresh rice.

The back of the postcard reads:
Rice threshing, a typical rural harvest season scene found in most provinces of the Philippines.
