This is a picture of two small calliopes I built about 1971 and '73. I've had them in many parades, especially in '76. The smallest one built in the circus wagon has 25 whistles and the one Betty Anderson is playing has 29 whistles. The tractor is an old Lambert riding mower that I completely rebuilt and decorated, mounting a compressor under the seat to furnish the air. I spent about 2000 hours building this outfit.
