Some Kinda Canopy!

Saying, 'I would like to dedicate the above picture to all my engine buddies from Michigan that are of the opinion that canopies are only good for 'hog coops'. What do you think, fellas, ain't she a dandy?' Engine is a 60 HP Case, #23712. Gentleman on the left is the late Frank 'Puffy' Schaffer, owner of the engine; man at right is unknown.

This steam driven gold dredge now sits around in Gigiville, just south west of Dawson City, Yukon Territory, Canada. She saw her duty during the turn of the century Klondike gold rush along Bonanza Creek which flows swiftly behind her.

A 19-65 Keck Gonnerman #1873 built in 1930. The thresher is a Red River Special built in 1936 and equipped with new five rib tires. Sitting on the tank is restorer and owner, Dunn. Does anyone know, he wonders, if engine #1874, the last one built, is still around?

Steve Davis of RD 2, Box 842, W. Winfield, NY 13491 found the glass plate negative for this print in his attic, and printed it. The photo was apparently taken by an amatesur photographer who owned the Davis farm in the late 1800's until about 1920. Davis reports that he has never seen another steamer like this one and he would very much like to hear if someone can identity it. He feels certain that the picture was taken in the W. winfield, N.Y. area.
