We just got back from attending the tractor show at Scottville,
Michigan.

These first photos are of a group of tractors from Wisconsin.
They come over on the ferry to attend the show and this is the fourth year they have done this.

This WilFord boom shovel was just donated to the club. It does run and they drove it off the trailer.
The club is going to restore it.

Henry Ford, was the first of eight children. With the success of Ford Motor Co., many of Henry's immediate and distant family members opened Ford dealerships. Younger brother William was hired in the employment office for the tractor company and in 1920 William Ford & Co. became the tractor distributor for Michigan and northern Ohio.

William Ford entered the construction equipment business in 1925 with the formation of the Wilford Shovel Co. in Detroit.
The most obvious component of the tracked 1/4-yard Wilford shovel was a gray Fordson skid unit. In 1927 the company changed to Universal Power Shovel Co., with William Ford as president. In addition to the Fordson powerplant, the shovel used several parts from Ford cars and trucks.
The machine could be purchased at Ford dealerships.

A nice display of antique washing machines.
Most of these machines are running during the show.
