25 Years Ago at Mt. Pleasant: Brian Krog of RR 1, Box 124, Lake Benton, MN 56149.
It is a scene from the recent Family Corn Festival held last August 24th at the Ontario Agricultural Museum near Milton, Ontario. The main attraction was freshly steamed corn-on-the-cob. A large steam engine cooked the corn with the husks on, sealing in all the fresh grown flavor. Visitors could sink their teeth into this tempting treat as they enjoyed the sights and sounds of square dancing, dixie-land band music and demonstrations of corn husk doll and wreath making, corn husk pipes and more.
Above Picture is the Drummond Brothers 25 HP Russell engine #17111, which is shown belted into the fan at the 1980 Mad River Steam Show in Urbana. The man turning the injector on is the late Elmer Wenger.
