Our 21st annual show was a resounding success, with record numbers of exhibitors, flea markets and spectators. Eleven steam engines were in full operation, belted to the sawmill, fan and threshing machine. Numerous models and scale models were also in operation.
Billy Kennedy's sawmill was a big attention getter, with nearly all the steam engines belting up to it, plus the Oil Pulls and some of the gas tractors. Since the show, Billy has made up a double pulley arbor so that next year we'll be able to power the mill with 'double headers'!
IMA ran an article about the Kitten engines in the November/December 1991 issue. We're very fortunate to have two of these scarce engines in the area.
The engine pictured here is another uncommon engine, an 18 HP 1921 Greyhound owned by Denny Jungbluth and his son Randy of Litchfield, Ohio. That's Denny in the photo.
We invite everyone to see these and other fine exhibits at our 1992 show to be held September 19 and 20 at our new location at the Lorain County Fairgrounds in Wellington, Ohio. It's the same friendly folks, just a different location with lots more room.
