Tuesday's Treasures from Saturday's Drive

Continuing to share Saturday's photos as they relate to the day's link-ups.

So for Tom's 'Tuesday's Treasures', here we go . . .

Antique tractors at Maple Lane Farm
 
 
Farmall - The McCormick Harvesting Machine Company merged with several other manufacturers and formed the International Harvester Co. They began experimenting with tractors around 1905. These tractors were huge, powerful and clumsy and although they were useful for large areas, they did not work well for the small acreage farmer. IH produced many tractors during their reign and were ranked as one of the largest manufacturers of farm tractors.
 
 
 Oliver - The Oliver Farm Equipment Company was an American farm equipment manufacturer from the 20th century. It was formed as a result of a 1929 merger of four companies

Fordson - Fordson was a brand name of tractors and trucks. It was used on a range of mass-produced general-purpose tractors manufactured by Henry Ford & Son Inc from 1917 to 1920, by Ford Motor Company (U.S.) and Ford Motor Company Ltd (U.K.) from 1920 to 1928, and by Ford Motor Company Ltd (U.K.) from 1929 to 1964.
The latter also built trucks under the Fordson brand.

  4. I have a specially fondness for the Fordson as my dad's first tractor was a blue Fordson Major which I crashed into a stack of bricks! Testament to its build quality, it was unscathed, not so my pride!!!
