Interesting? (old tractor photos)

Post by cjlockwood » Mon Feb 09, 2009 6:38 pm

Have been planning an 'Archive Gallery' on my website.

Just wondered if people would actually find it very interesting? (Is it worth the effort?! Or do the majority of people just like to see big new shiny boring machinery..)

Preview can be found at:

www.midsuffolkagriphotos.co.uk/archive

Not a lot is clickable as it's just a theory...

At the moment a lot of the photos are my own, but it would be nice if it had lots of other contributors too in future..

All comments welcome

Been and had a look, yes love it.
Tried clicking on the photos to see more put no luck.
I know theres a few people on here will know some of the tractors and farmers on there, loads of history.
I have photos from the 90, not as good as yours.
Very good

Ah good, glad you like it.

Nothing is clickable yet photo wise; before doing all the work I thought it was best to make sure people would actually like it and look.

Out of interest which farmers and tractors do you know? PM best maybe.

Chris, if i want to look at a 30 series JD or a CNH product, i will jump in my truck and go look at one.

To have an opportunity to view the stuff of yesteryear is a fantastic idea.
Pics from the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's are the stuff that the majority of us remember using or seeing.

Keep it up.
Lovely, lovely, lovely....hahahahaha

Chris, I have dug out more photos - the wife hadnt thrown them away, just tidied them up (almost the same thing to me)

I will get them in the post to you with a brief explanation of what, where and when. Got some more of Powr in action 1989, plus some of harvest 89 with Massey 2680 (Big Boy) NH TX34, 3070, 698 etc etc. Some more from 2002, moling, ploughing, combining. And some really nice ones of drilling peas in 1999 with renault 710 on terras with Howard / Sulky combi, drill filling with 3CX with a tote bin on the front, and drilling wheat in Dec 2000 after a very wet back end. I will post them to you again - for scanning.
Cheers
Simon

Hmmmmm, maybe not those ones. Still , I might send them to Chris to scan on - then I can save them to my lap - top. Second thoughts, they might be better staying in the shoe box for now........
