Rumely Co. around the door frame. The engine number plate is missing. Can anyone please tell me where I can find the engine number so I can find out the age, boiler pressure rating and etc?

It runs good and we plan a community threshing activity this fall.

Courtesy of Guy P. Laubis, R. R. 1, Kenton, Ohio 43326 This is a postcard shot of me and my engine, a Frick double cylinder, manufactured by the Frick Company of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania, in 1926. It is state inspected each year for 150 lbs. of steam pressure and is in top working condition. This photo was taken in July of 1966 at the Richland County Steam Show, Mansfield, Ohio. I am the owner of the engine.

This engine was at the National Threshermen's Show & Reunion for two years, Montpelier and Wauseon, Ohio, one year at the Miami Valley Show at Urbana, Ohio, and three, years at the Richland County Steam Show at Mansfield, Ohio.

My Father and Grandfather Laubis threshed all over the country, having owned and run two outfits at one time. They also had a cider mill and a clover huller. Grandfather's first steam engine was a portable Huber, manufactured in Marion, Ohio.

For a number of years I have done the solo for the church service at the National Show, also at Urbana and Mansfield.
