RE:Wallis Cub Photograph Dated 1912
Malcolm:

Wow! Wow! Wow! Tom and I have been talking about this picture for over a week now i am glad to see you are the new owner of it.

I really believe this picture is taken at the original Cleveland, Ohio plant Attached is a picture taken from one of my books note the water tower is in the exact place. I believe the picture you have is an older one taken before the little addition was added on or possibly the picture I have was doctored up like many of the others in the book. Note the Ford part is deleated out in the picture but the building is an exact match with the extention on the roof where the "Ford" name is.
Next remember the picture of all the Cubs pulling them round barrels? If you look at the ground you can see the tracks from the barrels I believe this may have possibly been taken on the same day as that picture. Also look in the backround and see the picket fence it is in both pictures, Next remember that picture you have of the Wallis Cub climbing over the rocks? The fence is also in the backround and that picture is doctored up as I said and that perticular tractor does not even have a gas tank!!
The picture I am posting here says 36 hour yard test I believe it was taken right out the back door of the plant out in the "Yard".

Now the thing that has been bothering me for a long time now, What was the emblem on the radiator??? Here is a picture fof the radiator on my Yuma Cub before I cleened it up you can clearly see there was an emblem on it, but what was it???

Back to that Ford plant picture I got Tom on the Case trying to track down the old Cleveland plant to see if it mentions anything about Wallis moving into an old plant and starting up shop or possibly renting a portion of the factory??

Anyone else out there have any information don't be afraid to jump in here and help us out!!

Joe
