A drawing of a rural landscape. In the foreground a traction engine is pulling a plough on a rope.

Reconstruction drawing by Colin Tyler of a pair of Everitt Burrell side-drum ploughing engines at work in a rural landscape that would have been typical of many lowland areas of the East Midlands at the end of the nineteenth century (drawing courtesy of Neil Tyler; see Haining, J and Tyler, C 1985 `Ploughing by Steam`. Bath: Ashgrove Press)

    Would it be possible to include a short list of all the relevant county and regional journals, with links to their websites and to any back issues available online?
