What is going on in with this tractor?

Here’s what we know: This photograph is from the University Archives. It was taken during Picnic Day. A John Deere tractor is being held up on its hind wheels by wires.

Here’s what we’d like to know: When was this photograph taken? Why is the tractor being displayed this way? Was this a Picnic Day activity or some sort of tractor exhibition?

We have many photographs from Picnic Days of the past and many feature various activities, displays, and parade floats. We’d love to hear about your favorite activity on Picnic Day past or present.
