Default What have I found

Whilst doing my snowy Sunday morning surfing, I came upon an unusual tractor photo. I have not yet had a chance to get out Wendell's book, so I thought I would link it here to see if I could stump the quiz masters. I tried enlarging the image to read the lettering on the tractor, but it is just a blurr.

Now while I am at it, this second is not a what, but where? On the same site I often frequent, I came upon this wonderful pic of a scale Rumely taken in the late 50's early 60's and possibly in Alberta. Anyone seen this very nice model. Very well done for the time the photo was taken.

Keep bundled up, it's cold out there.

Robert?
That's a new one! You better get your forensics team to clean up the lettering on there a bit so you can read where it is made. Looks like one of those locally built wonders where somebody thought they had a better idea - or not!
More research is required!
keep your puck out of the snow.

Ok, I dug out Wendel's book, and I may have found the answer. There are many similarities to the image above, other than the fuel tank and radiator, which I feel in the image above do not appear to be original and may have been a home update, to keep the old girl running.

Should I spill the beans, or let you ponder the iamge a little while longer??

Thanx Tom: That is what I thought exactly. Page 101 in Wendel's book.

Thanks for the great picture Robert.Every time I see a working picture such as this, I wonder how often men lost their lives when seat springs broke. With that big disc this guy would surely be in for some slice and dice. Talked to one who experienced this while plowing, fortunate for him he had a good grip on the steering wheel and lived to tell the story.
