Rhode, 735 Riddle Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45220

In an antique store in northern Kentucky I ran across what
printers call ‘cuts’ that is, copper etchings attached to a
wooden block. An old sticker on the back said, ’18 HP Kelly
traction engine.’ I bought the cut, and an area printer made
copies of the art for me. The O. S. Kelly Manufacturing Company of
Springfield, Ohio, built this engine, but when? Who out there in
Engine land can identify the years? One of the rear views of the
road roller had a sticker saying it was built in 1902, but the
others had no identification. I would be pleased to hear from
anyone knowing the answer.
