Labor Day Weekend is a popular time for engine shows all over the country. One interesting show in the East held at that time is the Early Engine Club show, held in conjunction with the Schaghticoke Fair, in schaghticoke, New York, near Albany.

The Schaghticoke Fair is a large fair, offering all the traditional treats of a country fairrides for the kids and exhibitions of all kinds, from sheep shearing to bee keeping, etc. On the grounds of the fair is a farm museum with a very nice collection of antique farm equipment.

The club's members exhibit primarily gas engines and some tractors, but one member, Floyd Hill of 5 Fern wood Drive, Loudenville, New York 12211, exhibits a steam boiler, which is shown on this page with his grandson in the background.
