Lee Brown and Fordson Tractor

Lee Brown and Fordson Tractor

Vintage farm photo, Brunner Farm

The late Lee Brown, of Perry Township, in Lawrence Co., Pa. leaves his home farm at the top of the hill, on what is now Armstrong Road. He’s driving a Fordson tractor and towing a wooden Frick thresher. This photo is estimated to have been taken in the 1920s.

(Submitted by Gary Hemphill)Gary Hemphill submitted this photo of his great-uncle Roy Cooper with his father’s team, pulling what appears to be a binder and putting up wheat. The photo was taken in Butler Co., Pennsylvania, around 1925.
Albert (A.J.) Loudon, Nick Althouse and Homer Althouse pause for a quick photo during a 1953 test of this plow on a farm near Salem, Ohio. It must’ve been a good trial, because Nick Althouse bought the plow!
