Simple Pleasures: Tractor Collections

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

Two more recent additions to Paul’s collection include these implements: at left, a potato lifter/ridging plough made by Howards of Bedford; at right, a horse-drawn hoe, made by Mealors of Neston. These implements and one other were bought from Emrys Owens, a collector and good friend of Paul’s. At 82, Emrys is no longer able to take the implements to shows.
