Incidentally, I am trying to source good quality modern images of Atco mowers made from the 1920s to the 1960s to help the current company with its planning for the 100th anniversary next year. If anyone has any images they can send me that would be great. 

Thanks.

I'd actually forgotten the car - love the armchair, and the edger is a bodger's delight! The Atcoscythe, whilst a mower, was pretty wacky too.
