Thumbs up Re: Traction Engine Pictures in the Darndest Places

That's a good one in Brandon, 1912 i believe the date is. When the big threshing outfits were really getting in their prime. I posted it a few years ago in one of these threads. i asked at the front desk and they had post cards available and i got a few. sent one to Mr Mannen, think he used it in an article in one of the magazines Ive Studied it alot. Theres obviously George White. Can also pick out Avery, Fairbanks Morse, Nichols and Shepherd, Kinnard & Hanes(sp?) Rumely, Case and Gaar Scott in the distance.
I don't know if ive ever posted this one. the Brandon paper used to post an old picture weekly. Similar Scene of Canadian engines.

While I can't actually pick out any Stover engines (other than one possibly by one of the two Stover signs) they were clearly there right behind the Fairbanks Morse display area.

Real Interesting picture to study and drool over.

That photo from CanadInns is pretty amazing, it's huge. I'd love to find out where they got it from, and get a reprint of the negative. I think I saw a Sawyer in the background as well, but you can't see it in my photo-of-a-photo.

Another from the same hotel, a Sawyer-Massey portable at the old Brandon Mental Hospital.
