Keck-Gonnerman double

Keck-Gonnerman double owned by Cox Bros., at Ingraham, Illinois. Keck-Gonnerman built the greatest variety of engines of any company and they were as good as any.

Here is something interesting we met up with on our trip this summer. 8 hp. Advance engine of 1888, owned by Benny Heggrude, Cooly, North Dakota. An S. S. Messenger thresher made at Tatamy, Pennsylvania, in 1888 and owned by John Sandstrom, Lone Tree, North Dakota. That is one of the neatest rigs we have seen for a long time. It was worth the trip. Mr. Sandstrom is a most interesting fellow. He has a museum of his own. His lawn is a dream. Paul Bunyan and his blue calf stand serene amid stumps from the Petrified Forest and realistic stumps made by John from concrete. Make a trip to Lone Tree.
