  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....

  3. Attached you can find in my opinion some amazing photos of the former International Photographic Center in Sheridan, Illinois. In one picture you can see the IH training center for farm and construction equipment, which was also located on the photo farm. Via facebook I got the contact with Tom Wolff from the website of "Vintage Aerial". He was very helpfull to find these and some other pictures of my interest. On his website he provides thousands of aerial farm pictures of the 60s, 70s and 80s. Tom Wolff asked me to share the information below with my IH friends. i hope this is OK for you: Would you please forward my contact info below to any friends or family, who may like me to find a 30-40+ YEAR OLD aerial photo of their family farm for them. * TO ENTER THE ADDRESS TO ANY OTHER FARM OF INTEREST GO TO--- http://www.vintageaerial.com/BCD OR CALL TOM AT 419-351-5624 An integral part of our mission is to not only connect you with your family's history, but to capture the collective history of rural America for future generations.

  10. Al Rucker provided a copy of a photographic magazine to me, where the work in the Hickory Hills photographic center is described. The magazine is called PMI, issue July 1968. I could only photograph the magazine sites, so it is a little bit difficult to read. I will try to attache all the sites in the next posts...
  11. For all who are interested I have made a little video about my trip to the photographic center too. Today I did the upload on youtube. If you search there for "International Harvester Photographic Center" you must find the video. i try to link the video in this post, but I dont know if it works. Maybe someone of you can help me if it does not work? Sorry, I did not cut the video, but I think it is interesting for the IH enthusiasts among us. The first part of the video is the way to the photographic center, The farm itself you can see at the end of the video. Herbert Here is the link: I hope it works....
  12. The silos of this farm are shown in some advertising pictures too. Unfortunately I cant load the comparison pics of the past, because they are too big. But look inside the buyers guides. You find the locations easiliy...
  13. Then and now. You may not believe it. But the trees and the windturbine shown in some pictures are still there.
  14. Here again the comparison then and now....
  15. This is a picture of outside and inside the old farmhouse. They told me, that some hunters rent the house during the weekends to sleep there, when they are hunting. I think, if someone askes if he is allowed to sleep there, it would be no problem. But it is pretty old inside.
