From Arthur (‘Brig’) and Helen Case Brigham,
Co-Editors, The Heritage Eagle, International J. I. Case Heritage
Jim Kyle’s threshing ‘train’ led by a 1910 Burrell
SC, followed by a Clayton Shuttleworth threshing mill, a cook wagon
and bunk wagon.
The Brighams found no Case steam engines in New Zealand, but
here Helen is aboard an 1894 6 HP McLaren single-cylinder
two-speed, with engineer Darryl Ayson of Feelding.
As many of our readers know, New Zealand made a bigger
‘deal’ of the 100th anniversary of the tractor this year
than other countries. The Brighams, well known for their Case
activities in the U.S. and Canada, made a trip to New Zealand this
year and sent the pictures on these two pages. The Brighams visited
two shows in New Zealand, one at Christchurch and one at
Winchester. They were impressed with the rallies, and found the
people warm and friendly.
