An estimated crowd of 4800 thronged to the stacked field of oats on the southwest edge of Flandreau last weekend. Oldsters reminisced and the younger set seemed enchanted on seeing how things were done in 'the old days.'

Saturday's admissions to the grounds were estimated at 800 persons and 92 degree temperatures Sunday greeted an additional 4000 spectators.

Largest steamers at the show included a 1916 Altman-Taylor owned by Obed Shellum of Garretson, a 1919 Nichols-Sheppard owned by Jack Kadnager of Sioux Falls and Adolph and Cap Rude's 1915 Case engine. The engines powered several different models and vintages of separators at the two-day show.

Garrit Havlaar of Hudson had his half-scale model of a 1931 Avery separator in action powered by a 3 horsepower model engine owned by C. A. Dubbe of Sioux Falls, and Le-Roy Fett of Harrisburg demonstrated his miniature engine to the delight of oldsters and small fry alike.
