The large engine on the left is a 3 hp. York owned by John Ritter, Jr., of Boiling Springs, Pa. Shown with it, is a ? hp. Charles Taylor engine made in 1908. This is a very rare engine. The York engine was made by the Flinchbaugh Mfg. Co., York, Pa. in 1914. These are very nicely restored with the painting and striping done by Mrs. Mary Ritter.
