Guard Sundstrom and a 1962 Case Model 430

A variety of tractors used in San Juan Island farming, including a 1930 John Deere Model D, a 1947 International Farmall Model M and a 1962 Case Model 430 were part of the second annual Tractor Show at San Juan Historical Museum in Friday Harbor.

To give visitors an idea of the sounds that filled the air when 25 horsepower was the only available option, the antique 1929 Hart-Parr Model 12-24 will be running.

There was also a display of running “Hit and Miss” engines, the one cylinder machines that ran farm equipment, such as milk separators and hay elevators.
