GREAT PHOTOGRAPHS OF FARM STEAM ENGINES offers a sampling of the powerful images from John F. Spalding's unparalleled archive of historical photographs. The book invites readers to step back into the age of steam power on farms in the United States and Canada: an era that reached a pinnacle in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.

Those readers that seek histories of the companies that built the engines and many additional images will also want to purchase THE STEAM TRACTOR ENCYCLOPEDIA, NEW EXPANDED EDITION, also by Spalding and Rhode.
