Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers

Seasonal brain teaser

In the tradition of the best publications at this time of year, and probably some rotten ones as well, I have devised a diversion to get readers thinking and fill any spare moments over the next few days.

It's simple really - all you have to do is identify the old lawnmower in each photo. I will post the answers early in the New Year.


Update - Righto, here it is, the moment you have all been waiting for - the answers :

1 - Dulson Lawnmaster

2 - Jerram and Pearson Super

3 - Qualcast Commodore

4 - Ransomes Sims and Jefferies RSJ Centenary

5 - Atco Motor Mower ( Standard )

6 - Ransomes Sims and Jefferies Kikuyu ( it's actually an export model Ripper )

7 - Lloyds Pennsylvania

8 - Arundel Coultard Presto Rollmo

9 - Ransomes Sims and Jefferies Ajax mk. 3 B

10 - Shanks Caledonia

11 - The  Flexa Lawn Mower Co. Ltd.  Flexa

12 - Ransomes Sims and Head  Automaton

13 - Thomas W. Green and Son  Silens Messor

14 - Williams Archimedean

15 - Drummond Brothers  Willing Worker


16 - Pennsylvania Drum Mower

Yes, thanks very much Colin. There are some fantastic photos there. Nice touch in black and white as well.

Thank you for your comments.

Converted to black and white to avoid making it too easy ! Sometimes particular colours can give the game away. That said some of you will know that a fair number of my machines don't have much paint on them anyway. All photographed on the premises here recently. I hope all the photo's can only really be one machine, at least that was the intention. Time will tell; someone may pick me up on something.
