About Duncan Wherett

Trevor Innes grew up on a farm in South Australia, and was one of the founding members of the Booleroo Steam and Traction Preservation Society which now has one of the largest collections in the southern hemisphere. As a young boy he went around with his father over the state collecting all sorts of tractors and other interesting machinery. It gave him a fascination with all things mechanical and how they worked. Whilst he has now moved on to design and problem solving, and is living in England, he has always retained a passion for the old tractors, and an interest in the huge changes the tractor has made to civilisation itself.show more
