Looking for Photo of Rare Salesman’s Sample
The Barre Historical Society would like to acquire a photo of a salesman’s sample of a full-sized New England Champion sulky rake built by Chas. G. Allen Co., Barre, Mass.
This photo shows a few parts of the 1/8-scale model. The wheels would be about 6 inches in diameter. We don’t know how many models were made, probably only five or six. Upward of 1,000 rakes were built from 1882 to 1905. If anyone has such a model or a full-sized rake, please advise if we can acquire photos.
