Here are a couple of genuine working photos from my youth, taken by my brother John Bush in the early 50s in Wales.
I am on the back of the load of sheaves and am the ploughman in the other photo. The wagon is built on a Rolls Royce chassis and the plough is a Massy Harris semi digger. the tractor I seem to recall we paid 170 for. Don't know why it has non standard back wheels, later we bought another for 77.50 which had proper Oliver wheels. We always used iron wheels for pulling the 4 furrow plough.
