Farmer shows off his new tractor in 1940
By Bill Lattin, Orleans County Historian
Pictured here around 1940 is Fred Canham next to his huge tractor used as the power source for a threshing machine.
This was a Huber painted green with hard rubber tires. It’s now believed to be in someone’s collection of early tractors.
He purchased this in the mid-1930s and did grain threshing for many local farmers. Later, Mr. Canham’s son-in-law, Howard Bigger, ran this business until about 1956 when combines had taken over.
