Like all the pix, especially the old tractor. Interesting to see one of that vintage with a cab. It says B on the hood. What make is that..doesn't look like any from North America..the kind I'm familiar with.

That's like wearing a belt and suspenders. :-)

Great shots, btw.

As usual, your shots show a very good sense of composition and light. I particularly like the way you used sunlight and shadow in #3.

Well, done, Torgny.

Thank you for the appreciation.

It was a day with very strong light. I don´t remember the exact hours but I think the sun just had reached, or was going to reach, it´s maximum for this time of the year

Thank you for the appreciation. Well, we are neighbouring brother countries only separated by the Baltic Sea. I have a friend whose father found a new home here during the second world war

Torgny,

Thanks for identifying the tractor make and detailing the info. In Swedish as you say, but I think I can guess at most of the stuff.

A Volvo tractor...boy is that firm prolific...cars, class 8 trucks, tractors.

Years ago I had a 1962 Volvo PV544 with the B18S engine. To this day I wouldn't mind having a restored PV544.

Very reliable, great handling, great shifter.
