The "IMPERIAL OIL TRACTOR " Looks to be very new condition in this photo, as does the crusher plant, These tractors were made from 1909 to circa 1913 , this tractor appears to be circa 1912 style , thus i would say this picture is likely to be of a brand new crushing plant circa 1912 , rather than circa 1920.
