The Old Days...literally

Postby Winfield Dave » Wed Jan 23, 2013 2:28 pm

My brother and I were talking about this photo today and I thought I would share it with you guys.
This is "Pappy", our 1950 Cub bought new by our Grandfather...no electric [ lights or starter ] and just manual lift.
Not sure who is on the tractor.

Cool shot. It is nice to hear the stories of family tractors. Makes them more special I think.

Nice old time shot and nice new time shot the other day with your daughter. You have the best of both worlds.

It looks like that who ever took the pic didn't want to get out in the cold and snow, so they took the picture from the upstairs window.

Nice picture Dave, I think "cool" is the modern word. Looks like a brand new garage in the background.

Or could be a tax issue. I know of a guy in Mass that has a five car garage shed at his place. He has heavy canvas hanging in the openings. If he had doors then it's classified a garage and has a higher tax rate.
