Show Scenes

Your magazine provides very interesting reading and each edition is something to be looked forward to, and to be gladly received. I'm not a steam engine man as such, but I've been completely fascinated by them ever since I was a small boy, many years ago.

The revival of interest in them, and the steam shows have been wonderful in that we have chances to see engines about which we have heard but never before seen. Pictures in your magazine make visible still more engines which I have never seen in the upper Midwest, at those shows I have attended at least, such as the Frick and the Port Huron. I'm still waiting to see a Buffalo-Pitts, although I've seen their separators when I was a kid.

Before my time there was a Three Rivers steam outfit in our neighborhood. I'm wondering if a Three Rivers steam engine is anywhere in existence at this date.

So I take your magazine for my interest in only one subject, and that is steam traction engines. The old sawing, about 'one picture being worth a thousand words,' is certainly true, and I have some pictures I took last September at the Lake Region Pioneer Threshermens' Association Fall Show, Dalton, Minnesota on September 7, 1974.

This is a dandy show. It is some 320 miles distance but I've seen it the last two years and it is worth driving a lot farther than that, even at today's gasoline prices.
