The Historical Construction Equipment Association is keeping the past alive through the preservation of antique construction equipment. On August 6-8 they will hold their national convention in Brownsville, Pennsylvania, in conjunction with the National Pike Steam, Gas and Horse Association 1993 show.
Watch a 1926 Erie steam shovel load a 1921 Mack Bulldog dump truck. See a 1927 Caterpillar Sixty tractor pulling a Euclid scraper (as seen above). View antique cars, trucks, tractors, bulldozers, skimmer shovels and other equipment both displayed and actually working.
Simultaneously, the National Pike Steam, Gas and Horse Association is sharing some farming methods of the past in a demonstration of threshing, baling, shingle making and sawmilling.
The fairgrounds are located just off US Route 40 west of Brownsville, Pennsylvania on sixty beautiful wooded acres. For further information contact Lou McMaster at the above address, or call 412-356-2307.
