  • 12hp 1908 Case engine

Winner, South Dakota

I am enclosing a photo of my 12hp 1908 Case engine in the September 7th, 1953, Labor Day Parade with which I took first prize.

There were thousands looking on with interest as the old engine went by pulling a trailer loaded with old threshermen and a sign above their heads saying 'Old Threshermen never die they just fade away.'

The parade was about a mile and a half long, consisting of old time cars, decorated floats, National Guard units, American Legion members, band units, etc. It was the best parade Winner ever had according to the onlookers.

George Fritle is on the engine with me at the left side.

I enjoy reading your ALBUM and am keeping all the copies and read them over again. We sure enjoy the Old Settlers doings at Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. The people we met were so pleasant and everything was so good that we plan to go back next year. Was glad we got to see you and also Mr. Smith.
