Jul 10: Tractor

Jul 10: Tractor

An abandoned tractor, Gonamena, Cornwall. We pass this and other abandoned farm machinery on the walk up to Minions. This is the first time I've photographed it, or even looked it over. Someone at some stage removed the cylinder head, maybe in an attempt to keep it, or another tractor going. They'd bungied a plastic bag
across the top of the block to keep the rain out. It hadn't worked. The cylinder bores and the pistons were just as rusty as the frame. Verdict: Beyond economic repair...

other sizes: small medium original

Great photo... maybe you could grab those rear tires and put them on your Bug? ;-)
