Some of the early garden tractors are replicas of their hard working namesakes.

Lawn and garden tractors run a wide gamut of manufacturers and looks.  The best place to see that was the Atkinson Vintage Farm Equipment Show Saturday September 18.  Besides vintage garden tractors, a display of primitives and antique farm implements were on display.  Numerous antique and vintage tractors were also  parked under the shade trees, making for a pleasant afternoon of viewing Illinois farming history.
