'For two hours the audience sat spellbound.'

That's how a British newspaper, 'The World's Fair,' described the reaction of the Banbury Steam Society to slides and tape recorded commentary depicting a typical American vintage show and gas-up.

The slides show what happens when the Badger Steam and Gas Engine Club of Baraboo, Wisconsin puts on its annual event. Verne W. Kindschi, a club officer who narrated the material, sent it to Banbury founder member Brian Money who arranged the program for his group.



The newspaper article indicated 'considerable interest' in the Oil Pull tractors and commented on the wide range of stationary engines which 'still survive' in the United States.

Mr. Kindschi very kindly sent us a tape telling something about the Badger Steam and Gas Engine Club and about his own interest in collecting.
