Legend of John Deere is everywhere

 Photos by Barry Wallace

Here's the the latest addition to a collection of old vehicles and implements (including an airplane) that are to be found on a property on the north side of the 15th Sideroad, west of Bathurst Street.   It is a John Deere Model A General Purpose tractor.   John Deere began making this tractor in 1934.   It featured a 3-wheel (actually 4 wheels) tricycle design, to improve maneuverability and reduce the efforts of steering between market garden plants.   Eight versions of the John Deere Model A GP tractor were built during the twenty years of its production, between 63 and 83 years ago.   Notice in particular the narrow, multi-spoked rear tires.
