The last picture posted reminds me of my Cat shop; Everything is torn apart nothing going back together.

Hi, Wombat.
Betchya they weren't Australians from anywhere after about the late 1920s - maybe earlier.

Just my 0.02.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.

Caterpillar D4 tractors near Colfax, Washington, 1954 
The Caterpillar Tractor Company of Peoria, Illinois plowed a filed north of Shawnee Road, located just south of Colfax, Washington 
for local farmers Donald Hart and Charles Hofer. The caption on the back reads: "Two Caterpillar Diesel D4 Tractors each pulling 
mold-board plows are plowing sweet clover for soil improvement. Total of 1500 acres in this wheat ranch with 1/2 in summer fallow 
each year."

Hi, CTS.
Yep, looks like they had 'hi-clearanced' it a bit, maybe about a foot.

Just my 0.02.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.
