Daughters and the Safety Vapor Engine

A blast from the past: This great photo from Fred Hickerson ran in the March/April 1974 issue of GEM. Does anyone know where Anne and Kathy are today? Or Fred and the Safety Vapor Engine? – Editor



My three beauties, daughters Anne, left, and Kathy, right, gracing my Safety Vapor Engine, serial number 141, the prize of my collection. Note the flyball governor on the fuel inlet (top left) and the chain driven sprocket on the side of the cylinder which rotates a disc type valve arrangement for the fuel inlet and exhaust outlet. A timing gear to the right of the sprocket drives a shaft which trips a “make and break” ignition system.
