Who were the Scottish tractor dealers and agents in 1970?

In 1970 there was a well-established network of tractor dealers and agents throughout Scotland. Some of them had been trading in tractors since the early 1920s when they were sold alongside cars. For others, this was more recent, with the increased move in the adoption and use of tractors, especially after the Second World War.
