About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Moline Plow Company

I grew up in Moline, Illinois, which is well known as the home of Deere and Company. I had never heard of Moline Plow, which was gone before I was born. Deere and Co. sued for trademark infringement early on in the life of the company. An extensive history of the company including the lawsuit can be found here: http://molineplowco.com/home/.

When I was growing up International Harvester, Deere, and Case Implements were the major farm implement producers in town.
