Advertisements from many farm publications printed at the turn of the 20th century were more than mere methods to hawk tractors and farm equipment. In today's world of never-ending commercialism, those old ads stand out as works of art.
To share those days gone by, Farm Collector intends to periodically reproduce some of the most spectacular ads used to promote farm equipment and products. We hope you'll enjoy seeing those beautiful ads in print again, and that each reproduction connects the past with the present.
This ad obviously used images of wise, old farmers and operational threshing equipment to promote Avery farm machines and first appeared in The American Thresherman, April 1903.
To submit a vintage advertisement for possible publication, send it to: Iron Age Ads, Farm Collector, 1503 S.W. 42nd St., Topeka, KS 66609; or send high-quality images by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
