In these photos, sent by Larry Mack, Milan, Illinois, a farmer performed field work with what appears to be a Moline Universal tractor (built 1918-’23). The land roller (below) is one of the earliest and most enduring forms of tillage equipment; the disc harrow (shown above weighted with a log) became commercially available in the 1880s.
