Show Report- Berryville, Virginia

| November/December 1970

Route I, Berryville, Virginia 22611

The Shenandoah Valley Steam and Gas Engine Association's annual show at Berryville, Virginia, this July proved bigger and better than ever. More than fourteen states and two foreign countries were represented in the largest attendance the show has ever had. Approximately 10,000 people attended over the three days, July 24, 25, and 26th.

The large numbers of traction engines, gas tractors, gas engines, antique cars and models attracted all who attended. Various other items which their owners have restored and had on display included feed and grist mills, 'rams,' water pumps, old gas powered saws, sewing machines, corn shelters, antique bicycles and washing machines.

The blacksmith and foundry worker attracted much attention with their skills.

Pony rides for the children in an old fashioned buggy and wagon were a new attraction this year. Sawmilling and threshing proved to hold the interest of all, as they usually do at a steam reunion.

The steam calliope was on hand Sunday with its musical notes drawing a large crowd.
