I have been getting the Iron-Men Album for many years. Lewis Jorgenson is my cousin, and I have been sharing the magazines with him. We thought you readers might be interested in these pictures.

Lewis Jorgenson, of R.R. 1, Box 84, Corell, Minnesota 56237 bought a stationary steam engine thirty years ago at an auction, all in pieces. He has now completely restored it and the boiler has been inspected. The steam engine was manufactured by Davis & Rankin, 240 to 254 W. Lake Street, Chicago, Illinois. Lewis would like to know what year it was manufactured and where he could find the serial number. It has a Number 1 fly ball governor. Is that the smallest size made? Also, he can't find the serial number on the boiler.

Lewis mounted the engine on antique wheels and frame so it is moveable. He enjoys taking it to local parades and county fairs, where the steam engine is used to power a Martin feed mill in which he grinds wheat for flour.
