Enclosed is a picture of a Huber steam threshing engine owned by
brothers Robert and Frank Hasenflue of 164 Washington Street,
Amherst, Ohio.

The picture was taken in the summer of 1953 while the engine was
threshing wheat. Picture shows Frank Hasenflue at the controls. The
engine has five whistles, lubricator operated by steam oil pumps
and tallow cup, cross-head pump, duplex steam pump and an injector.
The serial number of our Huber is 11530. The small engine on the
coalbox in the picture is a steam popcorn engine. The machine is
equipped with power steering and a 32 volt steam generator for
lights. The engine has been reconditioned like new in the winter of
1952 and during the spring of 1953.

We are old time steam lovers and are proud of the appearance and
performance of this steam engine. We had it displayed at the Lorain
County Fair this year and it lead the parade of mechanical
equipment at the fair.

Sincerely yours,

ROBERT E. HASENFLUE 164 Washington Street, Amherst, Ohio

P. S. The engine is located at the Hasenflue farm
11/4 miles south of Rt. 113 on route 58,
Oberlin, Ohio.
