RE:M-H Tractors/Racine
Here'sanother period personnel shot.  This time it's of Canadian sales staff who had come to study the Wallis tractor at the newly acquired Racine factory - previously JI Case Plow Works - where the Wallis line of tractors had been made since 1912. 

They would have been sent to study the Wallis 20-30 tractor of the day and which would subsequently also be badged the Massey-Harris 20-30.  The only difference between the two tractors as far as I am aware would be the badging including the casting on the grill, and a different tool box lid but maybe Malcolm, Joe and Tom can advise further.

In the staff list I see there are just a few from the USA.  Now does anyone know of the families of any of these people who might have some old tales to relate from their ancestors?

The shot is from the Massey-Harris news of December 15th 1928 so the event would have been soon after the MH takeover of the Wallis line.
