In 1914, this Nichols and Shepard 20-70 engine was purchased new
by C. E. Sykes. Sykes’ son, John sent us the photo, taken by
Marion Wagner. Sykes lives at 536 Linden Apt. 406, Long Beach,
California 90802.

The engine is currently owned by James Johnson of Dane,
Wisconsin, who is shown at left in the photo. Next to Johnson are
Joe and John Sykes.

its kind in the United States. Photo by Jim Morris of the
