Gas engines and washing machine

110 Seventh Street, Emporium, Pennsylvania 15834

These two photos show some of the gas engines and other mechanical items on display by the Allegany Mountain Engine and Implement Association at the Pennsylvania Lumber Museum located on Route 6 between Coudersport and Galeton.

In the background of picture #1 can be seen a washing machine collection, some operated by hand and others run by small gasoline engines. Other exhibits in this picture include a large industrial grind stone, water pumps, an old-fashioned drill press, old cement mixer, and a butter churn all driven by gas engines.

In the foreground a hydraulic ram pumps water to the tank on the tower, a small pump returns the waste water from the ram to the tank, for continuous operation

An engine driven cream separator is trying hard to make cream out of a white liquid placed in the machine to resemble milk.

In the same group a diesel engine generator provides lights for the grounds after dark when the show is closed to the public.
