The crude and inaccurate colourisation on this interesting card suggests a date earlier than the 1950's/60s, yet the tractor looks about right for that period.

The registration is BS 515?, and our Fordson Major from 1955 was BS 4686, so I would guess that it would be late 50's. The tractor is an International from the mid to late 50's, so the photo is probably a bit later - early 60's maybe?
