Great shots: Allis-Chalmers — in Alaska

LaPorte native Judy Kowal sent these shots of vintage Allis-Chalmers tractors all the way from Anchorage, Alaska.

“I always enjoy going to the Alaska State Fair,” she wrote. “The antique farm equipment is particularly interesting as the exhibit has a few Allis-Chalmers tractors which reminds me of my former home – LaPorte!”

Judy grew up on Scott Street and remembers the powerhouse that Allis-Chalmers was in LaPorte.

“I’ve lived in Anchorage for 7 years now, but come back once or twice a year to visit LaPorte and Michigan City. I enjoy reading your online publication as it keeps me connected to my hometown!”

Thanks for sharing these far-flung treasures of home, Judy.
