Antique technology

Windmills, horse-drawn harrows, threshing machines and steam-powered tractors. At one time, these machines represented the cutting-edge farm technology of their day. Ronald Barlow's 208-page book 300 years of Farm Implements and Machinery, 1630–1930, opens a window to the past with historical facts and more than 500 antique engravings of machines at work. It also shows some of the first farm machinery advertising.
