My uncle sent me this photo of my great grandpa.

 

Not much of the tractor is shown, but I'd think an expert in walk behinds could identify the manufacture by the handlebars.

Looks like Wards Riverside knobbies so it very well could be Simplicity.  Otherwise not enough for me to tell.

I'd agree.
Most likely a Simplicity / Montgumery Wards from the late fourties / early fifties.

I'm with the guys...handlebars, controls and especially the grips look like Simplicity.  The sulky I'm not so sure about.  The tires look like Riverside Power Grip.  A GREAT tire.

Thanks guys. My guess was Simplicity too. The shape of the handles sure look Simplicity

Bolens had a sulky just like that one pictured but I'm pretty sure they didn't manufacture it Midland did
