Talking Re: J. I. Case Pictures.

Fred, those bridge photos are a unique glance of the past. Back home we would place them in the Aw crap categorie or more politely, or I just knew things were going good! F.J.W.

Here is a nice Case portable - 45 hp.
It is owned by that crusty ol' TomQ who is a member here. One of those tabernacker Kweebecquers!
It is a very nice engine and one of the best used in the country. TQ says he is already booked for 8 or more events this year including the week long International Ploughing Match - held in the Ottawa Valley this September!
Not sure how he gets any work done on the farm being on the road all the time?

Hey Colin, is this a 12 HP? It's probably the smallest Case that has a canopy that I've seen a vintage photo of. Has anybody ever seen a vintage photo of a 9 with a canopy?

Glenn,
That third photo is of the Mehmke 110, 32hp Case and 30hp Avery. That museum is "west of Belt, Montana."

Colin, I'm waiting for you to weigh in on these many photos Glenn posted. I see a few confusing things regarding axles, smokestacks, etc.

Glenns 80 has special orderd 18" front wheels i believe its a later 1913?, so it still has the 50" tall wheels instead of 48 like the later ones.
Brad, i think ive seen mid 30s with canopys and late 30s with them for sure, not sure about older ones though. i will see if i can find any photos

Wasn't sure where to put this story? It isn't steam but very neat anyway! I wonder if it's still there?
The writer, H Gordon Green was a neighbour of ol' TomQ (mentioned above) for a few years. As a kid on the farm, mom and dad never had any other station on the radio but CKPC out of Brantford . When we came in for the noon meal - dinner as we called it then, just after the news, the livestock reports fom the Kitchener and Toronto stock yards, the grain reports from Winnipeg and the flue-cured tobacco marketing board update, thay always had a little talk by "The Old Cynic", H Gordon Green from Ormstown, Québec. It was always humourous.
Anyway, he wrote for the old Family Herald, a magazine that likely most every farm family in Canada got at one time. I have been putting some of the cartoons and ads on the Off Topic - Smoke & Flames forum on here in hopes of lightening the mood over there!
