Getting all steamed up at the Pub...

A different type of "olds Cool"

Dropped by the Rising Sun today for a pint of Cider, perfect warm day, but some people can't help but get steamed up on sunny day...

I love old tractors & farm equipment.
For some reason I find things that were designed with no aesthetic demands or style, but strictly designed for function - to be the most appealing aesthetically.

They are among my favourite things to photograph or paint.
Great pictures as always Kev.

OK I give up!

Nice pictures, looked everywhere and can't find the pub.
Is it a secret?

thank you!

Now I am drifting off into imagination about the Wallis & Steevens shop, and what it must have been like to work there, and what their machinery was like.
Thank you!
