Three black and white photographs used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published October 11, 1960 with captions:
"Business Operations Continue- When a spectacle as large as the International Plowing Match is presented, many people are responsible for its success. Shown ironing out some of the problems which invariably come up in such a huge undertaking, are, left to right: Frank Pineo, chairman of Local Commitee, and Elliot Moses, a director of the Ontario Plowmen's Association." (C8 Sh5 B2 F6 85a)
"Father And Son- Plowing got under way bright and early this morning at the I.P.M. Elgin County was well represented in the boys and girls 14 to 17 class. In the above photo, Arnold Stansell, a prominent Aylmer Ayrshire breeder, is pictured coaching his son Stewart. Both Mr. Stansell and Stewart said the land was very dry for plowing and the crown of each furrow had a tendency to crumble." (C8 Sh5 B2 F6 85b)
"Changed Scene- Thomas J. Hume is pictured here looking out over the Tented City that has mushroomed on his farm near Springfield. The Hume farm is the center of operations in the 47th International Plowing Matches which began this morning on 14 Springfield area farms." (C8 Sh5 B2 F6 85c)
