Home on the Range: Meriden Summer Show

Meriden Antique Engine and Threshers Assn. showground expansion brings old-time Kansas village to life.

This 1899 20 hp Reid oil field engine was built in Oil City, Pa. Capable of running at 160 rpm, the engine was noteworthy for design that allowed it to run reliably unattended, somewhat of a novelty in that era.
