Gary,

Thanks for sharing the photos. Wow, what a marvelous collection of old machines. In addition to putting them on display, does Kent plan to restore them too? I can't imagine the time, money, and skill that would involve.

I don't know the answer to that question. Sometimes machines are put on display without being put in working order. Some machines are already restored.

A final follow-up on this gathering is the information I gathered in response to Kent Bakke's curiosity about the coffees brewed in the steam-powered upright machines versus the lever machines that followed.
