Although the museum was closed on a cold, sunny day in January, the grounds were open. Apparently they always are! But I didn't know that at first, so I took this first photo stretching to reach up with my camera over the fence.
From inside the fence
Then I caught on and walked around the end of the fence to take more photos.
I think this may have been horse-drawn road grader, but perhaps it was also pulled by a tractor.
Looking at the front
I really like these shadows.
In celebration of the old and wonderful "stuff", I am connecting to Rubbish Tuesday HERE.
More photos from Our World can be seen by clicking HERE.
I think it's safe to say that their days on the road are over!
I like looking at old machines in museums. Makes you grateful for not having to work that hard anymore.
And I love rusty old things :))
Have a fine day
These old machines leave you in wonder and make good photographic studies.
Neat museum pieces, I wonder how the workers today would like them.. Thanks for sharing, have a happy Monday!
Love the shots but thinking of the poor guy having to use it in this COLD winter day makes me shiver. Keep warm. Hug B
Old machinery is so photogenic. So is new machinery but you can't get as close.
The light in these images is magical EG, a real sunny winter light.
So photogenic, I love the way they stand out against the snow..
beautiful old pieces of history and i like the shadows to. looks like it has two steering wheels.
These wheels have gone wild there are so many of them on this wonderful contraption! That is funny about the fence. Sometimes I stick my camera lens through the chain link squares and you would never know it was there.
I'll have to Google this and see how they were used.
I really like this old grader and the photos you got. The shadows are beautiful in your last picture.
Those are great. Who doesn't love old rusty stuff.
Hi EG CG, Neat photos, as always. I love this old stuff. One of my blogging friends suggested I link up my old postcard posts with Rubbish Tuesday. I guess it’s easier to link up with that if you don’t actually own the old stuff. : - ) Well, I mean it’s hard for me to call the old postcards rubbish. Yes, I know … one person’s treasure is another person’s trash. Ha ha. What do you think? Have a great day. John
pretty darn cool! i bet it was slow-going work!
Very old stuff, but well worth having as part of a museum!
I do love a bit of rust.
Great, interesting things and perfect to have as part of a museum! You do find the most interesting things to photograph! I love them! Hope your new week is off to a great start! Stay warm!!
Times have sure changed, EG!
I do love the old rusty stuff. great pictures and I am glad you were able to get inside. I don't want to read in the paper about the lady stuck on the chain link fence.
A lovely find and great photographs of it.
Love the sight of these arcane machines: they remind me of my granddad's farm when I was a kid!
Working this machine would be rough today given the frozen roadbeds.
Beautiful old rusty machines. Like the shadow too!
Such and interesting road grater...like you, I would think horse-drawn but don't know for sure.
Old machines are always a good find. The shadow of the wheel is beautiful.
I would never have guessed what this was!
Great pics with great texture and light and shadows
Great photos of very interesting old machinery.
The shadows are wonderful… great photos Tina!
I give it this much: snow and winter light can add a lot to photos.
Equipment like this and old cars remind me how comfy we have it these days. You can barely feel a bump in the road with some vehicles. Can you imagine the ride you'd get with this old equipment?
Good and sunny photos! I would never have been able to identify a road grader, you are good!!
Lots of green and rusty colours here.. and interesting textures.
I'm glad you found your way inside to get your pics. I adore anything with rust on it. :)
A great series of images EGCG. Hats off to all those hard-working souls who used this equipment (and probably without complaining or looking for the nearest trade union rep!)
WOW! That piece of equipment is OLD.
Wonderful vintage item and photography !
Happy Week to you,
artmusedog and carol
I took a photo of an old tractor. It is a decoration, so they won't like me to call it rubbish. I will post it for you.
Old implements are interesting!
I love the sun and shadows in your photos. You really caught the atmosphere of this season and time of day.
They made for wonderful shots.
Makes an interesting subject for photography. I like the rusty colour.
You find a lot of photogenic old farm equipment up there, EG.
Some time ago the federal government in the USA moved a lot of holidays that are tied to specific dates (like Armistice Day on November 11) to the closest Monday (now Veterans Day) to give workers three-day weekends and avoid the dislocation of midweek holidays. There are many ways in which it makes sense for companies and workers, but the genericization of holidays bothers me when I am cranky (like today).
You find really fascinating photo subjects in your world.
Worth a Thousand Words
Interesting to see these old machines.
Interesting to see these old machines.
A rusty old beauty.
I love rusty old things.
Boy, that's an old throwback, isn't it? Pretty cool.
A rusty treasure from the past! I see you don't have much snow on the ground there.
Not much mileage left in those vehicles.
