1919 Worthington Tractor in Boyertown Museum.

In preparing this article for publication, we learned that there
was a Worthington tractor in the collection of the Boyertown Museum
of Historic Vehicles located at 28 Warwick Street, Boyertown, PA
19512. Fortunately, we were able to make contact with Ken Wells
there, who sent us the two photographs on this page–one showing
the mower in the collection as it can be seen today, the other
showing a Worthington tractor with mowers attached.
