Steam Iron

Steam Iron

Thanks William for pointing this out.

This is a Waterloo Steam Traction Engine, circa 1880s.
Now the name Waterloo (after Waterloo, Iowa) may of faded into history but the John Deere line was born of this company’s growth, failure and reorganization.

The wide-angle perspective against the sky creates a most compelling image! Best regards, Martin

Nice shot Glenn; I am surprised that this beauty is not in a museum somewhere, it seems to be in pretty good shape. Thanks for the link to the article as well - always interested in a little history.
