I wanted to post a few pictures of my family involvement in the famous Massey Harris Harvest Brigade in 1944. My grandfather R.W. Jones along with three other brothers Delmont, Lester and Melvin purchased and harvested 2,000 acres a piece with all 12 of their combines. In the picture with guys in front of the combine. My grandfather is in the White Massey Harris company issued jacket. Delmont is on his right, Lester "Red" is on the far left standing up in lighter clothes. Melvin is sitting in the midle of the bunch. I'm going to post the pictures them make comments about them later.

Very nice. I noticed something here I had just noticed recently in some other older combine photos-headlights! Of all the options possible- why headlights? Was it possible in dry western climates to cut in the dark? Except on VERY rare occasions, you have to quit well before dark here.

Awesome pictures Shawn...Thanks for sharing them with us...How many years did they run the 21's...I think you said on the combine forum that you had found one of them..

Back in 1977 I was on a farm near Hoisington,Kansas looking at some WK-40 McCormick tractors...This farmer showed me 4-5 immaculate Super 27 Masseys in a qounset building that he cut his wheat with...He then did some custom harvesting in the neighborhood and 50 miles on to the north....He had tons of new parts for them...I often wonder what happened to these combines as the owner Nathan O has to be long gone....

I like the Case in the last picture; I'll e-mail Case Nutty to be sure he looks at it.

yes good to see the CASE , there is always ONE IN THE WOODPILE ...LOL,..There Used to be a large pix of the Massey Harvest brigade at one of the Freguson dealers ,i know all brands were used , generally,Most stuck with the same brand ,that way ,drivers could easily slip seats ,and know the Nature of the Beast, and the mechanic knew what he could expect , not to mention being able to swap parts in a snap ,

Is that the 21 that was on purple wave a while back? Looks to be in great condition.
