McBrides Antique Scrapbook

Here are some photos taken at antique shows around Southern Ontario this past summer.

The first two are of a 1924 Ruston Hornsby 4 Cylinder Oil Engine. This engine is owned by Walter Dedman of Cambridge Ont and as far as is known it is the largest engine in North America that can be transported to shows. The engine develops 500 H.P at 212 r.p.m and is capable of 10% overload 4 hours out of 12. C.I.D. is 27000. Two photos do not give the proper perspective, you have to see it in person to see the work that has gone into building the trailer that carries this engine.

1947 Empire owned by Jim and Guy Heaslip, the second seat has been added.

Dave Whiteford doing a good job in the 7000 lb. class at Niagara Antique Power with his 560 D

Brian Kenner and his WD9 also doing good work at the Niagara show

MM G all loaded and ready to go, must be an antique show on someplace!

Bill McBride hooked on at Paris and ready to go

1944 John Deere D driven by Rufie K and built by Don Brodhaeker of Cambridge

This sled doesn't look very big but it weighs about 22000 lbs

Some fine Moline specimens at the Paris Show

Shingle Mill at Rockton Antique and Hobby Show

Rock Crusher at the Golden Horseshoe Antique Society, owned by Jim and Guy Heaslip

Barney Kenner and Spike on the Rumely at Caledonia G.H.A.S.

Buzz Saw owned by Dave Beatty of Cambridge Ont. Dave has a nice collection of Minneapolis Molines too

Farmall M with 3-71 Detroit engine at Ilderton Heritage and Antique Show. Unfortunately I don't know the owners name but I believe he was from Michigan.

This Hudson was at The Homesteaders Show at Mt. Brydges. This car would look good in anybodys driveway.
The quality of some of these pictures is not the best, in some places I was cramped for space, pushed for time and I can't think of any more excuses right now.
