I am very pleased to see you are paying "attention to detail" the photographs were placed in order of what happened on the day. For me it is all about recording the moment, what ever we do in the collecting world, within a very short time our memories can fade, get distorted and sometimes important moments and information are forgotten.
This pile of M-H binder remains had been lying there for years, some rotted and gone, other bits taken and it was time to clear the remains, so thought it should be documented in true Massey style.
Collecting is more than just "tractors" and items of cast iron are very interesting, diverse and often decorative and compliment any collection. I remember when I restored my first Lister gas engine in an old wooden chicken hut around the 1968 / 69 time, I found some old Ransomes of Ipswich UK nameplates my dad had taken off old implements which he had kept on the bench for "keepsakes", I painted them up in Ransomes blue with red raised lettering, then I screwed them onto the wooden chicken hut wall and admired them for several years, that was my first encounter in "collecting cast iron" and little did I know what I was doing or embarking upon.
Look forward to hearing other cast iron collecting stories.
