Raymond Carey and his 1963 John Deere 420


Meet Raymond Carey and his 1963 John Deere 420. I saw him plowing his driveway right off Highway 137 in Albion Maine. For Mainards, clearing snow with a large piece of machinery is as satisfying as popping the air pockets on protective wrap.

Raymond enthusiastically let me take photos of him doing his daily task and we chatted for some time. He was quick to say that he had recently turned 89 and he was wearing his fifteen-year-old Carhartt jacket .
