Can anyone identify this mower?

I've been looking for a solidly built mulching-only push mower.
I came across this picture and it looks ideal for me but I have no idea what make/model this is, and the source of the image didn't either.

Help would be much appreciated!

Notice the one lever for all wheel adjustment. A rare feature now a days. A great example of the way things used to be built. Bet it had great tip speed too. No handles to squeeze just to start the damn thing. People back then were smart enough to know not to put yout hand under a running mower.

You'll have to take that up with whoever was supposed to be watching her. I fussed at my new neighbor yesterday because he lets her ride with him when he's cutting grass on his riding mower. I hope he doesn't do that ever again.
