The real thing in it's own time. Pic dated 1955, fellow in suit was young dealer at the time in Pullman, WA. His family also had a store ten miles away in Moscow, ID. That dealership grew and dominated this area for many years.

Can anybody tell me if that might have been the first year for this series of tractors? I have the "pony" version that my dad purchased in 1956. As I recall that was supposed to be the first year for that model. Bought new with mower for $2,600.
I like the old functional, non-stylized machines

They only made the 300 for two years then switched to the 350 which was much the same but a bit more power.
By pony version do you mean the 300 utility?
I put about 7000 hrs on our 300U.

The school with the barn and horsepowered school buses is uniqiue Loadstar----------gotta show it to my grandchildren (otherwise known as the "Rug-Rats").

This picture is a good example of the effort put forward by our forefathers to educate their children and bring the country forward----------schools and churches were one of the first order of business in developing the community. (U.S. or Canada)

Great photo of the local dealership Palouse--------those were some of the latter days of business men wearing suits/coats on a daily basis. Not long afterward---------more casual dress codes became more and more excepted.

And in many cases those country schools served double duty as a Church. Both the closest ones to me that my parents attended as schools during the week would often serve as the Church when the minister traveled out from town to conduct the service.
On an unrelated subject, here is the cover of my old Farmer's Advocate magazine from 1905. Great old magazine just packed full of up to date information for the farmer of 1905.

I was a kid when Nixon was doing his thing (1965 model), but I liked the photo just because it had a 300 in it. I don't know the story surrounding it, but I remember when I bought the tractor ($3,000 + a USED! Super "A" running) I was on line looking for information on it and just stumbled onto the picture. The Grille was on it when I bought it. Dad thinks it may have come off a TD something. It was cut down the middle and narrowed to fit the 300. It has saved my Grille a thousand times! :o

During the quiet time here, I have been thinking about times past. Like many, during my youth a penny could sometimes take a message a long distance. You guessed it! From my youth (which lives in the bottom of a file cabinet drawer) original 1 cent post cards.
