1919 Baker Uniflow
The Wetters’ 1919 Baker 23-90 Uniflow steam traction engine is still in excellent condition. Anne describes the 1919 as a big beast of an engine. “I refer to her as a woman,” she says, “because she’s very strong but efficient, and that kind of makes me relate to her a little bit.”
