A group of tractors related to the Fordson Major, owned by avid collectors Arthur and Margaret Jennings, Flintshire, Wales. Left to right: a Fordson E27N (the first Major); the Standard (or Model N Fordson), a hugely popular tractor here during World War II; and the Fordson Dexta. A keen ploughman, Arthur ploughs competitively with this little Dexta.
