St. Lawrence Power And Equipment Museum - Part 3

I'd reached one of several areas full of antique tractors:

This little boy was allowed to sit on quite a number of them, making tractor noises and pretending to drive them. I imagined that this was the highlight of the museum for him. And I enjoyed watching him have so much fun:

An unusual John Deere:

There were also old pickup trucks galore. Scouts, such as this one, were made by International Harvester from 1961 to 1980 and I remember seeing lots of them back in the day:

I don't know what kind of truck this was, but it sure was an old timer:

Miller's Garage in North Lawrence (right near me) had rebuilt this classic:

Lots of old trucks:

This old schoolhouse had been moved from its original site to the museum grounds. The exterior had been restored:

But there was lots of work yet to do inside. There were signs up, seeking volunteers for work days to begin restoration on the interior of the school house:

The original slate boards and the once ubiquitous painting of George Washington had been preserved and will someday be back in place in the completely restored old schoolhouse:

An old El Camino. Remember them?

And - oops, I don't know what this was, but it sure was a beauty. And yet there was still lots more to see at the Power And Equipment Museum. I'll post Part 4 tomorrow:
