Winter on a Maine Farm

In the winter of 1953, Kosti was sent to Bingham, Maine on assignment for International Harvester. The International Harvester Company was a manufacturer of farm equipment and tractors from 1902-1986 and Cecil Laweryson used International Harvester equipment extensively on his farm. Kosti wrote a summary and captions for his photographs.

“Cecil O. Laweryson of Bingham, Maine is what can be considered an energetic, intelligent, young progressive farmer and lumber operator. He purchased this farm in 1943 when it was in very run-down condition- but through sheer hard work he and his wife, Geraldine, have in the course of time made a successful, well-operating dairy farm out of it.” (from Kosti Ruohomaa’s notes)
