About 1934, with David Brown, Harry Ferguson formed the Ferguson-Brown Company and the two men produced the Model A Ferguson-Brown tractor with a Ferguson-designed hydraulic hitch. Ferguson surmised that the tractor hitch was the key to having a better plough and designed a simpler tractor attachment for it.

David Brown's Wiki page is surprisingly brief for someone who achieved so much - best known, I suppose, for his later ownership of Aston Martin. Whole lotta engineering memories under that hood !

A neat shot of this tractor's grill. Interesting history of this brand and his contribution to the improvement of tractors for farming.

Did these guys later hook up with Massey to make Massey-Ferguson or is this a different Fergusen? DOn't worry I can google it - I'm just tryiing to p*** you off because I am working and you are not!! And I am in a grouchy mood..But I can't stay that way for long because this is a phenomenal B&W dear friend - wow I love this photo!!
