RE:Family tractors remembered - gone but not forgoten
Here's the oldest item I have from the family "tractor" archives.  In fact it just about pre dates any MH tractors.

This is my great grandfather's retirement sale catalogue which we only found just a few years ago when we were clearing my uncle's effects.

As you can see he retired in 1919. The sale was in December - only a year after the end of the FIRST world war.

In the listing of equipment you can find a 12 tine cultivator by Massey Harris.  There is also a Monarch corn drill and I think these were made by MH too.

In those days MH operated from a warehouse in Bunhill Road, London before ever they moved their head quarters to Trafford Park, Manchester just about 3 miles from his farm.
