I also got videos of the two Versatile tractors that were driven while I was there: 700 and 895.
3 Steam Engines
Wood Bro's, Des Moines, IA and Port Huron Engine & Thresher Co.
|Added the other Port Huron engine to the line up|
|The other (gear) side of a Port Huron|
For each tractor, I tried to take 3/4 views of each side from the front and a square view of the back.

Hart-Parr Co. Charles City Iowa, USA
Pioneer Model 80-60, 1913; Winona, Minn, USA; Calgary, Alta, Canada

Rumely Oil Pull Model E, 1920
Aultman Taylor 30-60
I noticed when I was in the front that I could not see any cylinders. So I took a closer look at the back. Sure enough, the cylinder is not only facing backwards, its head is right next to the driver's left knee! I always thought of John Deere's two cylinder tractors as strange, but this one cylinder tractor is even more strange.
It looks like this tractor was used for plowing during a previous year: video. I counted seven bottoms on the plow.
