Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers


An American sidewheel mower made by the Lawson Mfg. Co. of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, c1888. This, like the "Richmond Star", was an asymmetrical mower driving through the right-hand wheel only, the theory being that the "idle" left-hand wheel allowed a closer cut to the lawn edges The handle was offset to the right, presumably to stop the mower going round in circles.
