The 1911 George White steam traction engine and threshing machinery catalogue has been reprinted by Steam Haven Museum in Ontario. The reprint is worthy of the White motto, 'The First Quality Line.'

An unusual size, 8 ' x 6 ', the catalog has an excellent color cover of an early threshing scene, aptly displaying White machinery.

The company, formally known as the George White & Sons Company, Ltd., had headquarters at London, Ontario, Canada; and subsidiary facilities at Brandon, Manitoba, and Moose Jaw, Saskatche wan. It is still in business, making farm equipment.

Numerous White traction engines are shown, two in color. A pair of White Special Challenge threshers are also shown in color.

Very interesting descriptive material is included, such as data on 'The Challenge Thresher with White Improved Cutting Box.' All the illustrations are very clear.
