Burch Plow Works Company was founded in 1867 as the Blount Plow Works Company and is still in business today as Burch Farm Implements Inc. Although well known for its farm equipment, Burch produced a line of non-farm machinery including stone/gravel spreaders, crack fillers, conveyors, and unloaders that were used in road construction, rail yards, and industry. The album includes large, detailed photographs of the equipment. Over thirty photos show the equipment in use at work sites. One photo shows a sales team set up at a trade show. About 15 of the photographs are of artist renderings. Several line drawings and specification sheets are also mounted.
