| March/April 1974


Here is our 1973 show report. Sorry I'm late.

The 1973 S. W. Iowa Antique Machinery and Threshing Show, held Aug. 3, 4, & 5 was a great success. The weather was in full cooperation as we had 3 very pleasant days.

Despite the conflicts with other activities in our area we had a very large increase in crowd size.

The large Corliss stationary steam engine performed flawlessly and was one of the main attractions at the show.

The log cabin, school house, and depot were open and many articles pertaining to the said buildings were on display along with all the hundreds of items in the main building.

A. C. Eshelman's 19 - 65 Port Huron steam traction engine was repaired, tested, and put to work for the first time in 15 or more years. It is a tandem compound and operates very smoothly.
