Who’s Sawing Wood?

This picture was sent to us by Morris Blomgren of R. 1, Siren,
Wisconsin 54872. It comes from a group of photos known to be from
the Minnesota, Wisconsin and North Dakota area. Perhaps someone
will recognize the picture and write to Anna Mae to tell us more
about it!.

Young Subscriber Has Some Questions

Fifteen-year-old subscriber Joshua Nace, 5540 Board Rd., Mount
Wolf, PA 17347, sent us this picture of himself at the throttle of
Harry Bechtold’s 1921 9 x 10 Frick. Joshua also is learning
more about steam rollers by running Abe Warner’s 1909 10 ton
Buffalo Springfield roller.

Joshua is interested in hearing what people think about the
boiler laws in Pennsylvania, with only one inspector, and in other
states as well. He’d also like to hear from others concerning
how much it costs and how easy it is to get the engines
inspected.
