Bundled in the winter

Vintage farm photo, Brunner Farm

Janet Reeder’s family bought this Allis Chalmers tractor in 1939, around her first birthday. Janet’s father, Paul Reeder, is pictured holding her. The photos was taken in Hanoverton, Ohio.

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.
Jim Sheffield submitted this photo, taken in Pittsfield Township, Ohio. In the photo Henry Sheffield stands on the wagon, driving the team of horses (named Bill and Tom), and his son Jim Sheffield stands by the standard. Henry’s father, Fred Sheffield, stands on the ground.
