I've acquired a pretty sizeable stack of old Farm Journals, with some ads I've seen before and quite a few I haven't. If anybody is interested, I can dedicate a thread and throw a few of them up here every week while winter has everybody cooped up. On a related note, I just took this with a camera, albeit a pretty decent DSLR. I really hate to fold these treasures up and run through my scanner, if anybody has a better idea to preserve this stuff digitally I would love to hear it.

I love old farm magazines and advertisements, and would love to see you post more. As far as scanners, I believe HP made one (not sure if they're still making it) that was about the size of a laptop computer. If you wanted to scan something from say, a large book, you could lay the scanner on top of it. I know I'm not doing a very good job describing it, but I have used one and it was very handy. My folks had one, and think it was only about a hundred bucks maybe 6 or 7 years ago.

I've had the same problem as some of the old magazines were quite a bit bigger than my scanner. Anything much bigger than an 8x10 I will have to scan in two parts and then splice it back together using a photo editing program. In some cases I can get a reasonable result just shooting the whole ad with my digital camera. Have to get the lighting right and avoid glare though.
Heres is an example of a full two page ad from the Country Guide showing a name that doesn't exist anymore. Those are Olivers on the left that were sold here in Canada as Cockshutts. Minneapolis Moline on the right.

Like this? lol, maybe there should be a separate deal for rainbow colors. I will keep this predominantly IH.

Like you I have a stack of 30 years worth of successful farming magazines and I have tried taking pictures and coping them and they don't turn out good, IH had some great advertisements back then, its a shame everyone can't see them.

Clay----

Great topic--------hope to see you continue. I have quite an old collection of magazines that I need to go through myself-----just never get around to it.

Hope you don't mind some of the rest of us throwing in one ocassionally--------I vote that any color be allowed; all paint and iron eventually turns to rust----------------most of my old tractors are just that. :huh: ;)

In regards to scanners-------------I did have a 11 x 17 Brother "all in one"; I don't know----------maybe I got a bad one----I see alot of people happy with them. It always seemed to be changing settings on me---------I finally got disgusted with it and discarded it. I noticed one in Office Max the other day at $250+/-.

If anybody knows of a better option than the Brother (within the reasonable price range)------------I would appreciate them letting me know. (I deal with alot of large farm maps)

Taking a photo with the digital cameras is an viable option---------but not as easy as the scanner option.

I scanned a bunch of these IH ads a few years ago and saved them to disk. Now I wish I had put the dates on them as it would be more interesting . When did the "new 706, 806 " series become available?
