I took this photo of a tag on a old tractor, by the looks of the name, it was made before Daniel Massey merged with Harry Ferguson.

Bob,

Fascinating bit of history re the merger, it never occured to me that the name "Massey-Ferguson" would be a merger.

There was also a Massey-Harris. I don't know if it preceeded Massey-Harris or followed. My dad had a Massey-Harris tractor.

That is really cool, here is a link to some history on this subject. It looks like Massey and Harris merged first then Ferguson came along quite some time later.
