Adventure: Backyard Discovery | Evanston Photographer


Today I worked from home because we were having our 1950’s-era home insulated in hopes of banishing chilly winters for good.

One area of the home requiring work was our crawl space. For good reason, I have never actually explored the crawl space… it’s dark, dank and a wonderful home for creepy crawlies… But the workers got in there today and they unearthed this gem… a 1950s Follows and Bate “Folbate” push mower from England.

Google led me to the brochure for this lovely piece of lawn equipment.

It’s described as having “wonderful technical advantages” among its attributes.

I wonder if my husband is up for using it on the lawn this weekend…
