Found these and thought I'd post them here.

Those were the good old days! Wish spring was here so I could get my reels back on!

It's called a "Ridemaster" 

 

I think they only did "National Bolens Month" for one year (1956)

Man, all of those are great photos.  Are any of the machines, "hand me downs?"  It is really good when the machines and photos stay family.
