Riding down the road

Vintage farm photo, Brunner Farm

Tom Downing, of Ellwood City, Pa. submitted this photo of the late Lee Brown, of Perry Township. Downing said it appears Brown had just left his home farm at the top of the hill, on what is now Armstrong Road. He is driving a Fordson tractor and towing a wooden Frick thresher.
