Photograph taken in 1951 of the Ivel Agricultural Tractor which was made in 1902. Designed by Dan Albone (1860-1906), the Ivel tractor was named after the river running through his home town of Biggleswade, Bedfordshire. Weighing far les than its American competitors, it was the first succesful light internal- combustion engined agricultural tractor to be built. Albone set up The Agricultural Motors Ltd to market his invention, and this is believed to be one of the first production models. The company produced a more powerful version, but after Albone's death the design was not developed further.
