Never looked up the post card mentioned above, but maybe it was like this one? I have the original here of this. Nice Western Canada scene! Would love to meet this outfit on the road today

Here are a few pictures from my gallery... the first is my great uncle Bob's 40 Hart-Parr, three wheeler.



The second picture is of Fred Thurston's 40-65.



This is the big 40-80 Hart Parr plowing



The last is the 40-80 Hart Parr engraving.

G.,

Here is the description that goes with the postcard:

WORLD WAR 1 - On the Eastern Front : Russian steam-roller. US Manufactured) captured by the Germans.

Sounds like it could have been one of the Hart-Parrs that went to Russia in the early days, about the same time as that Rumely E 30-60 I posted earlier.

This last photo is of Clarence A. Harsch of Spokane, collector of Hart Parr tractors. He had several, but is shown with the Mehmke 30-60.

This is a picture of Hart Parr #3 I took in 1964 at the Smithsonian Institution.



This is a Hart Parr threshing in the Fort Benton area of eastern Montana.



Leo Horan is pulling a combined harvester with his 30-60 Hart Parr. I remember stopping there as an eighth grader and he had three of them!

This first one is of Ralph Pebl's Hart Parr pulling binders.



This is a 1960s vintage picture of the Mehmke 27 hart Parr.



This is a picture of Graham Sellers and Vic Ehnes starting the Mehmke 27 in the late 1990s. John Schrock is watching. They start it on the backfire.

A post card from my collection. Nothing on the back. On the front is the word "Faira and the rest of the word drifts off into the light colored foreground.

It says Fairbanks Ranch (I think)

I inverted the color in MS paint. That sometimes makes things easier to see.
