I thought I'd give a little heads up since its been pretty quiet lately on here. A little over two years ago I started work on my website, and in February I put it online. While I've hammered on the tractors section a lot, other sections I never really got around to. Well, after two years, I finally did. If you haven't visited the site since I posted it back then or have never been; pull up a chair and a cup of coffee, because a lot has changed.

The site started at barely 20 pages, its now almost 60 pages. I have an entire page of artifacts, three pages of catalogs, advertising and trade cards, and a large page of pictures I finally got online in the past few weeks. I also just put online all the implement sections I hadn't gotten worked on and a page for the branch houses, including current photos of the ones still standing. A few sections had grown too big, so they got split as well.
Its not done, its one of those projects that never really is. theres some glitches to clean up, there always are. But for now, its probably one of the most complete looks at a major company of the late 1800's and early 1900's online. Let me know if you spot any major bugs and I'll try and iron em out or if you have any suggestions.
I'd also like to say thank you to everyone who has helped provide information and photos.
So happy holidays guys and gals, enjoy!
