Mr. Guy W. Scheuler, 6130 S. 22nd St., Omaha, Nebraska, sends us this picture of a 22hp. Baker pulling a Gaar Scott Mill of the friction drive type, which is quite old. Taken at Thompson, Nebraska, 1953. Omer Scheuler, brother of Guy, is the owner and filing the saw. Guy sends a couple bucks to keep the steam up another year. He says he has a Port Huron Longfellow No. 7738. It sure is a shame so many steamers have been junked. My father was a real good engine, separator and mill man. He has a 16hp.
