Scope and Content
Black and white photograph used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published May 17, 1960 with caption: "I.P.M. Springfield Location Well Marked - Motorists travelling along No. 73 Highway in the Springfield area can hardly fail to notice the 20-foot-long sign pictured above which advertises the location and dates for the International Plowing Match. The sign was erected Monday afternoon on the northwest corner of the farm of Charles Clarke, R.R. 2, Springfield, where a large part of the big match will take place. The billboard served the same purpose last year in Wentworth County, and the previous year at Simcoe. Assisting with the work were Franklin Pineo, local I.P.M. committee chairman; Ken Bawden, Tented City committee chairman; Reginald Clinton, health and sanitation chairman; Giles Hume, R.R. 2, Springfield, on whose home farm much of the activity will centre; Herb Morris, Bill Johnston and Mr. Clarke."
