R13 S3 Sh6 B2 45c was published in the Rodney Mercury on October 4, 1978, with the caption: “Queen of the Furrow competition attracted about 35 young plowgirls form different counties around the province, but none from Elgin.

R13 S3 Sh6 B2 45d was published in the Rodney Mercury on October 4, 1978, with the caption: “Plowing with teams of horses did not attract as large a crowd as with antique tractors, but those who did watch plowmen direct their single-furrow plows and their fine teams marvelled at how well they turned furrows in straight lines.”
R13 S3 Sh6 B2 45e was published in the Rodney Mercury on October 4, 1978, with the caption: “Tented city streets were crowded during last week’s five-day International Plowing Match. With each street nearly a half mile long, thousands of spectators were in each of the six and cross streets. Both sides of each street were lined with displays, concessions, etc.”
R13 S3 Sh6 B2 45i was published in the Rodney Mercury on October 4, 1978, with the caption: ”Steam engines huffed, puffed and whistled, attracting quite a bit of interest as they powered various types of equipment, including a large water wheel, impeller pumps, etc. Here Ken Mistele looks at the Sawyer-Massey steam engine.”
R13 S3 Sh6 B3 45j was published in the Rodney Mercury on October 4, 1978, with the caption: “W. G. Thompson and Sons’ Hyland Seed tent had District Manager Don Somerville welcoming visitors John, Greg and Mrs. Purcell of Clachan.
