Here are a few more not so closely related to agriculture but interesting all the same.
Incidentally, the old Brecon firm of Rich, Mr Rich was great grandfather of the Rich brothers of gardening fame with Charlie Dimock.

Originally, Rich & Sons were carriage makers and wheelwrights and here are a pair of grease caps I have off one of their pony traps.

Thread made me think of a few old magazines in cupboard which are about 120 years old. Whilst primarily an advertisement they are full of fascinating insights to the time,

Page huntons was a foundry/blacksmiths who sold a wide range of farm supplies and equipment. Until recently we had a 12 ton bulk bin with the sticker supplied by page huntons Ltd.

When they were ferguson agent they actually invented the ferguson game flushed to go on the front of a tea fergy to flush game from grass ahead of a rear mounted finger bar mower.

Also the "page" part of the company was my great great grandad on my mums side.


I have got a few ring binders full of adverts and brochures from the 50's and 60's that I could take some pictures of if anyones interested.
I was just re reading through this thread, I'd be really interested to see the old adverts mentioned if you still have them
