Simple Pleasures: Tractor Collections

Old iron and tractor collections bring happiness and therapeutic benefits to collectors from different walks of life.

In addition to the satisfaction of preserving artifacts from our rural and industrial past, Paul Jones also gains huge pleasure from just tinkering. He is shown here with his No. 2 corn-grinding mill built by Henry Bamford & Sons of Uttoxeter with a Colonial sifter, which sieves the flour into three grades.
