This image shows David Brown tractors lined up outside Belton Brothers and Drury in Eastoft. Belton Brothers and Drury were local distributors of the David Brown tractors as well as offering services, equipment and replacement parts. David Brown was founded in 1860 as a pattern manufacturer before making gear systems. They later started making tractors in the 1930’s which proved very popular at the time. The company went on to purchase Aston Martin and Lagonda in the late 1940’s before selling them in the 1970’s when they got into financial difficulties. They also sold their tractor operations in the 1970’s although the company still exists today.
