John Spalding, 112 Carriage Place, Hendersonville, TN 37035, supplies us with another mystery engine. This thoroughly outfitted farmer was clearly prospering when this stunning photo was taken sometime in the teens.

There's no information on the picture telling when or where the picture was taken, but there are ample clues. This month's teaser should be fairly easy, especially considering the attention this manufacturer received in a recent issue.

As ever, the first person to correctly identify the engine (bonus points for getting all three pieces of equipment) gets a free copy of Steam Engine Guide by Professor P.F. Rose.
