Thanks for a great post. I really enjoyed the video. It sure is nice to look back at yesterday's prices. I was a little surprised at the prices shown for the trailers. Maybe I missed something and will have to look again.

The Ads for the Trailers were from 1940's & 1950's Magazines but the Ads with the Prices for the Farm Implements were from a 1927 Sears & Roebuck Farm Catalog......so in caparison to the Annual Salary of the day , they were Quite Expensive Items I guess.

I love seeing the old ads. When you first see the prices it is like holy crap I can't believe how cheap they were but till you put it in perspective of what salaries were then they were quite expensive. I would love to eventually have a DB walk behind and I know I have mentioned that a couple times before but the other one I would like to have is a David Bradley Suburban :D
