My Grandfather was a Bachtold distributor back in the 60's through the early 80's? This is a post card with my sister sitting on a cart pulled behind a Bachtold mower. Post cards if you remember were used a lot before we had e-mail. I think my sister is about 16 in this picture Hope you enjoy.

Thanks for the picture. There is a Bachtold here locally. But the operator isn't near as pretty. In fact he's not pretty at all!
