Default Gloucester Vintage Show 2017

Had a good day wandering round today, decent weather as apparently it rained heavily yesterday. Just got the best part of 400 photo's to sort out now

Bloody good show wasn't it. OK so not the biggest stationary engine line-up in the world but as you pics show, some good stuff there and just so much other stuff that I really don't feel we did it justice in one day!

I thought this was a pretty unusual exhibit - they use to be such a common sight around the countryside, when did they all disappear?

It was that big I got lost a couple of times . I liked that the show ring always had something going on and if it wasn't for marital harmony I could have spent a couple of days there looking round.

Don't think I have ever seen one in use driving anything around here, mind you I'm only a spring chicken

If its one I've seen before there is usually an open crank at its base driving a pump, it all fits in the back of a van. The owner told me that it shows how water was pumped.
