Title Reinhold Farm - Plowing with the Puddle Jumper
Place Medford, Wisconsin
Date c.
Description Carl Oliver Reinhold is plowing field using the puddle jumper. This photo is significant as it demonstrates the transition from horse power to motorized power.  The horse drawn plow had been modified to accommodate motorized power.

People could not afford to buy tractors so they converted cars to tractors.  Carl Oliver built the puddle jumper from a 1926 Buick. He used the puddle jumper prior to his marriage to Josephine and for some time after.  As reported by son, Richard, "they used it for many little jobs such as racking hay, making fence, and picking rock.  It was the second tractor as I remember.  It was faster."
