Posting photos from the WHS archives

Thu Jan 17, 2008 5:11 pm

I see a lot of people are posting pictures from the Wisconsin Historical Society's IH-McCormick Collection.
This is great........that is why we have spent so much time raising money for the we can share the collection: pictures, paint committee decisons etc...
I would like to ask one thing. If you do post an image from the WHS please credit the picture as such and include the WHI image number.
This accomplishes a few things: you are giving credit to archives (who maintain, care and make available to you) and also it makes it easier for people to order prints etc..if they want to.
The link to the images and paint committee decisions can be found on the Historical Society's website:

I don't think you have enough IH stuff.Ya oughta be ashamed of yourself,especially being associated with the WSA.Seriously, the association has been a great deal of help to me when I was restoring a 1915-1917 McCormick hay tedder and a 1920's Deering hay rake.Keep up the great work. I think we all appreciate it.

He is down a bit because of all the duplicates he sold at the IHCC auction to make room for more stuff.

Jim forgot to mention that a lot of it went on his trailer to head to Texas.

The worst part is that Jim helped me load it at my house to haul to the auction.
We then loaded it back on my gooseneck to haul back home and THEN on to Jim's trailer.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that stuff. I wonder where I put it. All I rememberd hauling back here was a grill that I was neither buying nor selling. I do remember starting the raffle tractor so we could load it to take to the auction.
