This is the thirteenth year the show had been held here and 13 must be a lucky number since this was our best show. This sentiment seems to have been shared by everyone who attended.

There were exhibitors, buyers, sellers and people who came to enjoy and relive the days gone by. Exhibitors came from local areas and all parts of the State and all surrounding States with model steam engines, big steam engines, gas engines, antique cars and other items of interest.

E. T. Tremary of Trenton, Missouri brought his 16-50 Peerless steam engine for the first time and helped with the clover hulling. Frankie Van Duzen of Dawn, Missouri was here with his 16 HP Advance to operate his shingle saw and flour mill. The Maxwell Bros. from Ridgeway, Missouri were here with their 16 HP Nichols and Shepard and were busy as usual. Stanley Mayberry, 17 years of age, was here with his 22 HP Advance Rumely. Stanley owned a steam engine before he had a car. Paul Bryant of Braymer trucked in his 26 HP Minneapolis. A 22 HP Advance Rumely owned by T. J. Schwartz of Kansas City was here to help with various jobs to be done by steam. Virgil Rains of Kingston did the threshing with his 65 HP Case Steam engine and 32 in. Case separator.

There were several good antique tractors, gas engines and antique cars.

Marc Lamoreaux, Waterville, Kansas brought his old-time calliope and furnished music that was enjoyed by all.
