Old Tractors

Several old tractors are tucked between buildings in downturn Port Hope. This one, a red restored McCormick, is a gem. 

I thought I would take a few photos of the old machine so that I could sketch it later by working from the photos. 

What I had not noticed about these tractors is how unbalanced they look. This one has the power take off reel on the right side. That position necessitates the offsetting of the forward section of the tractor on the rear axle. Not really lopsided, the tractor nevertheless looks disbalanced. 

It's is amazing the things that you will see when you really look at something, isn't it?
