Stanley Shaw and his Shaw Manufacturing Co. were loyal to Galesburg, Kansas
A 1924 Model T-25 Shaw Du-All in all its restored splendor, owned by Joe Franklin of Dixon, Ill.
What garden owner could have resisted the temptation to purchase a Du-All after reading this magazine advertisement that appeared in the 1938 American Poultry Journal? If this commercial wasn't enough to sell the shopper, the free catalog offer would have been.
Some of the Shaw "DU-ALL Girls" explain the garden tractor's finer points and many uses to curious onlookers at the California State Fair. This scene is part of a beautiful black-and-white product catalog that dates to the late 1920s.
The same catalog shows assembly line workers. Again, notice the engine's front wheel: It was traced and painted after the picture was taken. Was a phantom wheel drawn on to the picture or just highlighted?
A Model T-45 equipped with a 10-inch No. K10 Plow, No. KC10 Coulter and No. TR22 Extension Traction Rims was also featured in the same late-1920s catalog. Notice the hand-painted promotional detail.
