Open House at George King's

North Franklin, Connecticut

30 October 2005

It has been several years since I made it over to George's house for his fall gathering and boy has it grown.  All are invited to stop by to visit and admire his collection of old "stuff" and to bring any sort of mechanical whatever to add to the fun. 

Since I live only about 10 miles from George's home I headed over there about noon on a bright fall day to what there was to see.  Yesterday (29 October) I had gone up to Windsor VT to visit the American Precision Museum show and today I saw many of the same folks in Franklin. 

There are a number of antique car photos in this set and since I am not an old car person if anyone wants to email me with information about any particular car I will be happy to add it to the page.
