Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers
(from a facebook local history group)
This is thought to be a 1928 photo from Woodbridge, Suffolk. Can anyone ID the mower?
A great photograph & could well be a Thomas Green & Son's, New Century, as the name suggests introduced in 1900 & I have seen ad's as late as 1932.
My thanks - that looks like a very solid ID, which I've posted back to the Facebook thread,
Yes the mower does look to be a Green's New Century but the plate appears to be missing,even if it was there we could not see what it would say, a pity as there were 2 different types of plates, the early 1900's plate had the Royal coat of arms, as with Keith's machine post 1925, the Royal Coat of arms was replaced with a star
Clothing is also very difficult to age at times,particularly in gardeners
As in your name a real Bugbear!
