Advertisements from many farm publications printed at the turn of the 20tn 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 will 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.

With a border of firecrackers, this ad may have implied Avery equipment gave the farmer more bang for his buck than anywhere in the world. This ad was published in The American Thresherman, July 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 imagesby e-mail: FC
