Lewis W. Peebles, 315 Stratford Road, Akron, Ohio 44313 sent this photo of a Lauson restored by Jim Jonas and owned by his uncle Frank Jonas. When Peebles was a boy, his father owned two of these tractors, but they were destroyed during World War II.

I believe the engine was made in the late nineteen-teens. The engine is painted Centari 1317 A green with two teaspoons of white 700A tint per quart; truck is Dulux 5485DW red.'
