A collection of vintage films, sales pitches and commercials for the Ford line of tractors which dates back 100 years. I’ve collected a number of fine art photographs and artwork of vintage Ford tractors in the New England region including many of these fine old machines still in running condition and even still in used on farms in New Hampshire and Vermont.
Fine art photographs and prints of vintage Ford tractors by visual artist Edward M. Fielding can be purchase as greeting cards, prints rolled in a tube, frame and matted museum quality artwork, wood, canvas, acrylic prints and even on products such as t-shirts, tote bags and shower curtains. Makes a great gift for the Ford tractor fan in your life.

Ford Tractor Company vs. Fordson
Ford Tractor Company was a company in Minneapolis, Minnesota, active 1916–1917, that built tractors to facilitate “horseless farming”. It was not related to the Ford Motor Company.
The choice of name has been assessed as deceptive by later commentators. Businessman W. Baer Ewing had hired tractor designer Robert Kinkaid to develop his product line, but named the company after one Paul Ford, a local hardware clerk Ewing had hired, allegedly to leverage the Ford name to take advantage of customer confusion with Henry Ford. The company may have hoped for a quick settlement with Henry Ford to acquire the name, but instead Henry Ford marketed his own line of tractors, beginning in 1916, under the brand name Fordson.
The company is the subject of a silent educational documentary produced in 1917, Horseless Farming With Ford Tractors.
