In the January/February,1985, issue of Iron-Men Album, we showed a number of old postcards issued by engine manufacturers. Here are some more vintage cards showing tractors and other agricultural equipment in the early 1900's. They are from the collections of Tom Stockton, 1036 Oakland, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48104, and Charles Garrett, Jr., 2660 Delaware Drive, Florissant, Missouri 63033.

Some of the messages, from unknown writers, are as interesting as the pictures:

"Here is another machine. This plows 16 acres a day on 6 gal. of oil. That's going some." (1911).

"Hi, Everybody. Everything's just the same." (1918).
