What is a A Steam Show?

| March/April 1977

The following letter is from the Boiler Bulletin, an official publication of Ontario Steam & Antique Preservers Association, Box 133, Milton, Ontario. The organization sends me a bulletin each time, which I greatly appreciate. I felt this letter was worthy of passing on to all our readers. - Thanks O.S. & A.P.A. - Anna Mae.

'What are you doing this weekend?' They ask me.

'I am going to a steam show,' I tell them.

'What is a ... a steam Show?'

What do you tell them? How do you explain what a steam show is to someone who doesn't know?

I tell them that a steam show is a gathering, something like a fair, where people who have collected and restored antique farm machinery, exhibit it.
