Default 'New' items Appearing in Crosby

I made a quick trip to Crosby yesterday for the annual meeting of the historical society. The agriculture equipment building is coming along nicely. The walls of the old filling station are up and looking good. A 1908 Rider Lewis found its way into John's shop.

I wasn't aware of the new buildings being put up. Wow, that's one nice size building.

That building will be mostly for horse drawn equipment.

Wink Re: "New" items appearing in Crosby

I was up to Crosby last weekend to see Bud, who came down from Saskatoon to work on Joey's pickup. Work was interrupted on the pole barn due to weather, after some great progress. The 40-70 Flour City was standing without its motor and transmission. The last picture is of the 40-70 back in 1962 when the crew was picking up the parts in Lambert to take them to be reborn in Crosby. More pictures will follow with comments by of no one with more credibility than the most honorable J.R. Tysse!

Wonder where they plan to put all the campers and RV's that normally set up there during the show, that new building takes up a lot of area!

Hi Frank

The building is south of the barn but there is still room for some campers there. The new building complements the barn nicely! The colours a good match! The shape! The size of the windows! I think it looks real nice! And will be a great addition to the show!

In the early years of the 20th century there were many sheds built as Slims #1 picture shows on both sides of the boarder. The steamer or big gas tractor and separator pulled in down the middle and the binders and other small machinery between the posts along the sides. Most of the originals have fell victim to the elements. It is an ideal design for the show grounds.

It is really exciting to see all the new projects underway in Crosby! The show is always great so if you haven't been there you better make plans as it looks like the 50th will be the best show yet!

The new storage building is done except to put some crushed rock inside before display machinery in it. it is a 120 ft long and 70 ft wide with a 20 ft door at each end has 16 ft posts. Will be called the Walt Aslackson building. Will be used to display horse machinery, seperators and ect that we want to preserve and display but won't need to move them out very year. The Ekness family has built a old time meat market building. We are in the process of getting a early service station done with a working visiable gas pump also are doing some work to improve the inside of the kitchen. Also Julian Nygaard wants to build a 120 X50 building to display combines and other items that will be kept in there permantly. Plans to have it up and done by show time. Plan to get a couple of buildings painted and a rare wooden wheel windmill up by show time. We want things to look good for our 50th year John Tysse Jr

One never knows what might show up. John will probably find one or more tractors or cars.

New At The Show This Year; Dudley Debolt is bringing his one cylinder Flour City tractor to the show this year, he is hauling it all the way from Roxbery, Conn. I think it is the oldest running tractor in the US. He has it nicely restored. Rudy Rathart, Forman, ND is bringing his 30-60 Case gas tractor, one of five left and a dandy original one. Rollag, Minn is letting us bring the 30-60 Pioneer that originaly was used at Lignite, ND 35 miles east of Crosby. Joe Peternil is bringing the 35 HP single cyl Hart Parr. Also we are hoping to have Clearance Young's 65 Case from Fargo where it has new piping and flues installed and we are hoping to get the Ladies Of Steam to operate it. Will have Charlotte Mehmke's newly restored 12-25 Avery there. Glynn Orwik is planning to have his 14-28 Rumely out there and I am planning to have the 40 HP Case portable gas engine running. Only 10 of these were built in 1915-16. Have a 20 HP portable Titan that is new to the show also. Montana Slim will have his 1925 Peerless, 1910 Model T, 1924 Model T & English Austin. Am sure there will be some other tractors, engines, cars. Remember this is our 50th year

What is the Date for the Crosby Show ?

I'd LOVE to get Dudley's Kinnard Haines Flour City at our 50th Anniversary Show in Freeport IL as well if the dates were close enough together to hit both shows with a short layover between them to save on trucking.

There was a Kinnard Haines Flour City Tractor just a few miles from my place that I have pictures of, one of which was used as a testimonial in their advertising (top of 5th picture) that I thought it would be cool to take them in to the local News Paper with a short story on them and let people know that one almost Identical to it could be seen at the Threshing Show.

Our Dates are August 2nd, 3rd, & 4th this year.

Cool. . . Two Weeks Before our show then.

I know of a couple safe places it could be stored for the week and a half between them if they'd be interested.

I expect that anywhere that relic goes, it's care takers go and stay with it. Not something one would be willing to take unnecessary risk with. Something that we have learned the hard way about.
