Default Small Gas Engines at Alexander September 2008

I don't know if this is all the small engines worth photographing or if photographer Bob Melville Just likes big subjects better.
This is all I could find in his collection.
Tell me what you would like to see and I will hunt them up

Mike, Bob Melville took 752 pictures at the Alexander Show.
They are all on a disk and I am showing a few at a time.

Going away for a week. the grandson in Virginia Beach will be ten on the tenth. He gets birthday presents and then we do christmas a couple of days later. Will post more pictures when I get back. They won't be small engines . Lots of pictures of factory size engines. I'm getting some help in identifying the steam engines. I'm told we had 3 Cases at alexander. One has a big headlight, one has a big bell and one has a big whistle. Hopefully when I post those pictures I'll be able to say who the owner is.
