Eastern Shore Show

| June/July 1986

Secretary Rt. 2, Box 266, Federalsburg, Maryland 21632

Calvin Minner of Harrington, Delaware, is shown making quart strawberry cups with a machine that his father purchased new around the turn of the century.

The weekend of August 2, 3, 4, 1985 marked the 25th annual show of the Eastern Shore Threshermen and Collectors Association, Inc. With perfect weather, the show turned out to be the biggest and best ever.

Thousands of spectators and hundreds of exhibitors took part in the Silver Anniversary celebration at the show grounds near Federalsburg, Maryland.

Besides the main event of wheat threshing there was shingle sawing with a 100-year-old Lane shingle mill, sawmilling, rock crushing, sawmilling on two miniature sawmills, demonstrations on the Baker fan and dynamometer, strawberry cup making and broom making.

Restored antique tractors and gas engines were abundant along with full-size and model steam engines, antique cars, live steam models and a team of oxen. Over a hundred entries took part in the parades each day.
