  1. Youtube Link to two videos (Inside and outside) which I made during my this years USA trip of the McCormick farm in Steeles Tavern, Virginia, were the first mechanical Reaper was invented by Cyrus Hall McCormick. Especially the inside look was very impressive for me. Although the furnitures arent original from the McCormick era, but the structure and the rooms are the same as the McCormick family lived in it. The house is used as office building from the Shenandoah Valley Agricultural Research and Extension Center. I had the priviledge that superintendent David Fiske allowed us to have a look around the whole building. I hope the links work. Or search on Youtube for "McCormick farm, Steeles Tavern, Virginia". One video is from outside, the other from inside. Please excuse the quality. I am not a professional videomaker....
  2. Attached you can find a letter from the designer of the IH logo, Mr. Raymond Loewy. The letter was sent to IH designer Gregg Montgomery. Read the original story of developing the Logo. I have also attached a site of a design book about Raymond Loewy, where you can see the creation of the original logo. The logo was created I think in 1943 and was redesigned in 1973. I have attached a photo where the original logo is compared to the redesigned logo.

In one picture you can see the IH training center for farm and construction equipment, which was also located on the photo farm.
