More treasures from the Skinner Farm Museum...


This is another of the treasures from the museum.


I moved in a little close for this shot.


Roger got up there to show size...


It was actually as long as this looks!


See the bulldog?

Now the 'thing' below was there close to the steam tractor above.


According to Wikipedia the 8-16 Mogul is a tractor made by International Harvester.  (that is the owner at the extreme right...)


I hope you enjoyed these...there is still more to come from this place.


This dusty little knight was in the back of a truck in the other building...I just had to throw him with this mix for good measure.

I will be linking to Tom's Tuesday's Treasures.

I'm always astonished at the size of the machines they were able to produce in days gone by!
Love the suit of armour too!

Judy said...

What an awesome place to visit! I don't think I've ever seen a suit of armor before, I'm loving the design on it.

Old farm machinery is so photogenic Rose and I wouldn't mind dusting off that wee suit of armour and finding a spot for it :)

Neat stuff here rose. Every summer we have a steam show here locally. There are a bunch of steam nuts in the area. Thanks for sharing this week and I hope to see you soon.

Was surprised by the last photo of the knight. Looks like old machinery was a favorite topic here this week.
