I'm trying to figure out what it is. The bit just out of camera looks like where it could be pulled by horse. But then the bit underneath in the middle looks like a type of plough and where it would be pulled across the field. It looks like a lot of things, but then again nothing I've ever seen. :?:


Am going to look an idiot aren't I? :lol:



p.s. I edited your topic title.

LOL...I have no idea what it is either...if someone could tell me I'd really appreciate it.

There was another "contraption" with the one pictured above.

The first one is a road grader. It's hard to tell without seeing the drawbar whether it was meant to be pulled by horses or a tractor. It fits very well with the transportationtheme since transportation technology has always been limited by road building technology.

I have no idea what the other one is but it's a nice one.

BillD9...Thanks,I've been puzzled for years as to what that thing is and road grater makes perfect sense.

I don't have a shot that shows the drawbar clearly,but this is from the other side.

So rather than it being some type of plough, that bit underneath levels off the road surface?
It did look too big to be a plough, but I couldn't think of anything else it could be.
