You wouldn't have a stake in Ford Tractors,now would you Dave?

Ref; 10th of August Kev if you can't say anything but 'bla, bla, bla' don't bother.
As for the child in the buggy, I hope the snapper got permission from the mum, as it's an illegal photograph if you didn't.

What a load of ....... TRACTORS!!!!

RH...There is no right to privacy in a public place under English law. The photographer does not need permission from anyone to take photographs of anyone or anything (including children).

The tractors are gleaming, but I myself would sooner see them hard at work and up to the axle in mud. Good photo David. Hard not to get someone stood in the way.


Comment by Rob on 29th August 2011 at 19:35
Great photo David, where was it?


Comment by David Barker on 29th August 2011 at 22:07
Thankyou for your comments.Rob the show was held this year at Haigh near Wigan in the windmill field Copperas Lane Haigh.

You wont see most of these upto their axles in mud because they are old timers that have been restored. Looking down the line after the two Ford tractors, David Brown, Nuffield, Massey Ferguson 35, Fordson Major, not sure what the last one is.


Comment by John Morris on 30th August 2011 at 09:26
The last one is a "Standard" Fordson Honk. The trouble is I can remember when these were "up to their axles in mud", even the "Standard" Fordson which is probably the oldest one here.


Comment by honk on 30th August 2011 at 23:30
Thanks John I recognise it now you've named it. Like you I can remember those days, once got a Nuffield Universal bogged down and had to use an old Fordson major (same as the one in the photo) to pull it out.
