And now, the weather for tomorrow rain moving in. No! It couldn't rain on the opening day of the U. P. Steam and Gas Engine Association's 18th annual show.

Over 100 antique gasoline engines were in place for visitors to admire.

Over 50 antique tractors had been brought in for display including a 20/30 Eagle, 10-20 Titan, and 25/40 Oil Pull.

The large steam traction engines loomed over the U. P. State Fairgrounds in Secant, Michigan, silently waiting the first light of Saturday morning to bring them to life again.

Saturday morning of Labor Day Weekend proved to be encouraging a few clouds, but not enough to keep people at home. A scattered shower or two during the day encouraged people to enter the Agricultural Museum to see the club's 15 HP Badger sideshaft in operation, or to observe the Corliss steam engine slowly turning as it has for the last 100 years.
