Humme farm.

This is a copy of a photograph taken in 1904 of my father's outfit working what is now the Bill Humme farm.

Here is a picture of my 1924 Fordson which I restored after it had been sitting out in a field for 16 years. I completely disassembled it and hauled it 18 miles to my home in the trunk of my 1959 Ford car. Each piece was sand blasted and painted before it was reassembled. It was rebored, has new piston rings, valves and guides, all new bearings in the transmission. Many of the parts are hand made, such as spindle belts and bushings. It runs and looks like new. I have had it in several parades and one show at Pinkneyville, Illinois.
