25th Annual Historical Equipment Exposition
and International Convention
Hosted by the Northeast Rockbusters
Washington County Fairgrounds, Richmond, Rhode Island
11 September 2010
I had seen an advertisement for this show earlier in the summer at the Zagray Farm meet in Colchester CT so I planned to visit this event. A fine fall day with clear blue sky was just the ticket for an event like this. And a bonus was that the fairground is not all that far from our home in eastern CT unlike many of the events that I visit which are invariably a hundred or more miles away.
I had hoped to see a working steam shovel but no such luck. However there was a fine array of every sort of construction equipment so it was a great day.
At breakfast this same morning I read an article in the Norwich Bulletin (CT) about the Yankee chapter of the Antique Motorcycle Association of America having their annual convention in Sterling CT. I chatted with one of the fellows associated with these cycles and it turned out that they had also drive over for this show.
