Collectible farm-related and tractor postcards add unique dimension to old iron hobby

Rumely ToeHold Cultivating Tractor
The Rumely ToeHold cultivating tractor: This unusual divided-back card (marked on the back #AD360-214) reads, “Cultivating tractor has 14 tractive horse-power, 32 belt-power and is less than 5 feet tall. Just the thing for cultivating orchards as it is lightweight, speedy, turns short and burns cheap fuel.” Rumely acquired designs for the ToeHold from a California man in 1912. If Rumely ever produced the unit, it was only for a very short time.
