I ran this steam roller at the Central North Dakota Steam
Thresher’s Show at New Rockford, North Dakota in 1970 and 1971.
They are not so sure as who made it or how old it is. It came from
the city of Winnipeg and has been a few places before it got to New
Rockford. Courtesy of Henry Swansen, 202 N. Washington Street,
Aberdeen, South Dakota 57401.

Pictured is an 18 HP Advance-Rumely engine owned by Louis and
Mike Althoff, and Ron and Mark Pieper. We had lots of fun and many
headaches before we purchased this engine. Bringing an engine into
Illinois and getting it tested creates many a problem. First, you
must prove it is an A. S. M. E. boiler. Our engine met all
requirements but we looked at many fine engines which wouldn’t.
We will be at the Stephenson County Antique Engine Club Show again
this year which will be held in Freeport, Illinois July 28 and 29
at the Stephenson County Fair Grounds. We are very proud of our old
gal and when you hear her on the Baker fan or our sawmill at 150 p.
s. i. you will know why. She was built in 1922 and shipped to
Janesville, Wisconsin along with her sister, another 18 HP. The men
we got her from had the two with consecutive serial numbers. Photo
