A picture sent to us by David W. Morrison, R.R. 1 Box 214, West Concord, MN 55985-9765. The picture was taken at LeSueur County Pioneer Power Association's show at which they hosted the 2nd annual state convention for Minnesota IH Collectors. This is a model F-30, 1936, #FB-17056. Owner is Russ Johnson of Alexandria, MN. The tractor has 40 inch tires.

We also want to thank David for the nice sticker calendars he sent us this year, as they are very useful in the office!

A picture sent to us by  of 7320 Blackmer Road, Coopersville, MI 49404, who writes:

'I recently had in my possession a box of old pictures and in it found an old postcard with this old John Deere tractor and grain drill with grasshopper operator. I had two copies made.'

Lester had hoped we would publish this picture in the magazine, and here it is for everyone to enjoy.
