Above in his back yard. Hall says, 'A picture is worth a thousand words. The big Bovaird is from Bradford, Pa., with its little neighbors, the Myricks, from over the hill in Olean, New York.'

It took Dennis Quincy, of Lincolnshire, England, and his son
three years to restore the 1899 Hornsby oil engine above, shown
here at the 1991 Great Dorset Steam Fair. The engine has hot bulb
ignition and burns high grade household paraffin kerosene. It was
installed in a large woodworking shop, where it ran all the
machinery and powered a generator for the shop lights for
approximately 60 years. The photo was sent by Cornelius Bergbower,
Louie Ave., Box 144, Bluford, Illinois 62814.

‘We made ice cream and brought back memories for the
residents of the Morris Hall Nursing Home. We served about 25 old
folks their fill of ice cream on one hot July afternoon.’

It’s an undisputed fact that engine collectors find it
rewarding to save this old machinery from the scrap pile, and even
more so to restore it to working order for display at shows and
gas-ups. However, we’re sure that being able to provide an
afternoon of memories for these residents gave Mr. Hullfish a
feeling of warmth he won’t soon forget and we don’t just
mean from the weather!

The engine is used to power the machines inside the shed behind
it. Dave Hall, 5871 Diller Rd., Sanborn, New York 14132,
