Somerset #3

 Somerset Steam and Gas Pasture Party - 2012 - Orange County, Virginia 

The focus of this event is clearly the large steam-powered tractors, but this year I tried to record some of the other areas of interest. For more on steam, see here and here

The car pictured above is a 1932 Ford Coupe--the "little deuce coupe" that was a favorite of hot rodders in the fifties and sixties.

A contemplative moment on an early gasoline powered tractor. McCormick-Deering was not a manufacturer, but a line of tractors made by International Harvester.

Photos taken with a Pentax MX camera loaded with Fuji Acros 100 black and white film.


  1. Very nice, love the photos, feels like years gone by both photo, tractor and car

    1. Thanks Don. Being around all this old machinery certainly does feel like years gone by. It is nice to see something of those years past preserved.
