Photography, Antique Tractor, Massey Ferguson, Title: The Quilt, Tractor And Jasper Gadberry General Store


The was a Sunday in October and I planned to set out with my camera and gear towards the Tompkinsville area of Kentucky. For whatever reason I changed my route to include the Crocus Creek area first (indirect route, but in that direction)...I never made it to Tompkinsville. This image is the result of an embarrassing second trip to see Mrs. Lacy (owner of the tractor and property). I had lost her contact information and was returning to verify the initial info she had given me about the tractor and building.

I also wanted to let her know I had captured a good image from the first trip (of just the tractor and building) and would be giving her a print of choice of the image since she was kind enough to let me take lots of photos.

She brings out this quilt (in the photo) she was making and wanted to know if I would be interested in taking pics of we drape it over the clothesline. The quilt in the works is from some of the shirts from her late husband, Creed. The Massey Ferguson tractor in the pic was “his baby” and he expressed to her she was never to sell it. He was a bus driver for the Adair County school system for 46 years. And if the story needed anymore added to it, the old building was once the Jasper Gadberry Country Store.
