In the mid 1960s if you were looking for implements, you could have purchased from County Garage a selection from Ransomes, Lister, Bamford, Howard, Jones, Allis Chalmers, Lundell and Wallace.

There are still a few Fordson tractors around the vintage rally circuit that bear the County Garage name. keep an eye out for them!

The photos were taken at the Highland Folk Museum rally, May 2014.
