The Harvest

| April/May 1986

2445 S.W. 77, Court Miami, FL 33155

The Harvest, a Country Fair, was held November 23 and 24, 1985 at the Dade County Youth Fair Grounds in Miami, Florida. This is the annual fund raising event of the Historical Association of Southern Florida.

Good weather was on hand for the large crowds that turned out to see art and craft exhibits, antique cars, country music, clogging, games, petting zoo and, of course, old engines.

Engines were shown by members of the Florida Flywheelers Antique Engine Club and other local engine collectors. Over 50 engines, 1 John Deere tractor and a working 1 /3 scale model Case steam traction engine were displayed.

Many of these engines were belted to machines from the past, giving viewers a better idea of the variety of work that could be performed.

It was so interesting talking to many of the people who possibly had never seen engines like these before or others, who worked with them in days gone by.
