A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian is set in Peterborough.

Peterborough is a cathedral city in the county of Cambridgeshire. The current population is 164,000. It is an industrial centre, known for its brick manufacturing.

Labour shortages after the Second World War encouraged people from across the world to move to Britain in search of employment. People from throughout the British Isles, Europe, Asia and the Caribbean came to Peterborough to work in the brick and engineering industries.
