This ANZAC Day, let us remember Life Member the late Dorothy Lillian Pinkess, whom during the Second World War served with British Land Army. Following her war service she migrated to Australia, eventually settling at Whitemore in Tasmania, where she met and married local farmer Verdun Pearn. Dorothy was a strong contributor to Pearns Steam World and maintained an interest in agriculture throughout her life.

Please note our Anzac Day opening time will be 12 noon. ‘Lest We Forget’

Pearn's Steam World

Loaded up and ready for its journey north, is this 1953 Allis Chambers Model C tractor. This tractor has an interesting history and long association with South East Tasmania. The Young family formally of Bruny Island used it to drive along the beach delivering fresh milk and meat to the residents and holiday makers alike. In the early 1980’s it was sold to Mr Pod Wiley of Orford who used it to launch his boat. The late Mr Wiley may be known to tractor enthusiasts having spent much of his working life with machinery companies in the South of Tasmania. Pearns Steam World would like to thank Pod’s daughters Cheryl and her late sister Meg for their generous donation. ... See MoreSee Less
