CASE Read Machinery own by summer County, Tenn. Since this
photograph was taken, another complete outfit of CASE Road
Machinery has been bought by summer County.
I’ve been interested in old iron for quite a few years, but
in 1990 I decided to get involved!
I purchased a 2 HP Stover, and ever since I’ve been looking
and picking up a few more items to add to my collection. For now, I
only have gas engines but someday I hope to expand to steam
While looking through some old postcards at my
grandmother’s, I came upon these two. They were sent to my
great-grandmother. The dates on them are not clear. After talking
to my grandmother I found out that her father was part-owner and
operator of a steam engine and thrasher.
I wish I could locate that engine but I cannot locate any
records at all, and no family members know what happened to it.
I enjoy seeing old photos such as these in the magazine and
thought I would send these in.
