    Rediscovered

    Hi Guys,

    In photo 2 I tried to make the photo look as old as the subject. What do you think?

    Cheers,

    John

    If you want to look authentic, what period are we considering, possibly mid 1930s?

    I'm chiefly going by the metal 'spade lug' wheels. And I'm not sure of the tractor make. Initially, I thought Fordson but on second thoughts, possibly Case or International.

    Some metal wheeled Fordsons were shipped to the UK from America during the war; and painted green for camouflage. Tractors were relatively uncommon on pre war UK farms.
