Toros Ready For Work

Bob Wolff from Toro provided three great old photos of Toro products at work in Minneapolis parks. (See previous stories here and here.)

The first two are tractors from 1939 on East Nokomis Parkway.

But best of all is this fleet of power reel mowers circa 1930. I love this picture. Can anybody identify any of the maintenance people in the photo? Every man wears a hat.
