Albert City Threshermen and Collectors Show

Albert City Threshermen and Collectors Show

The 15th Annual Show was held Aug. 9, 10 and 11 1985. According to the show secretary, Darwin Johnson, more advertising and a better economy attracted more visitors to the show bringing attendance to 10,000.
A new feature was the Cherokee Ridge Runners and it was the first year for the Bill Riley Iowa State Fair Talent Show to be held at the site. Another new attraction was a children’s pet farm.
This week we are including an undated photo of the “mobile tour wagon” that was used during the show and was being driven by Karl Lovin.
Also pictured are two undated photos of a typical threshing scene during the early years.
Do you recognize anyone in these photos?

“To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child. For what is the worth of human life, unless it is woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of history?”
― Marcus Tullius Cicero

AC Depot/Museum - The old Albert City Depot is now part of the museum in town. It was the site of the most infamous moment in the town's history. In November 1901, the town sheriff had been notified that 3 men had robbed the Greenville bank and were headed to Albert City. C.J. Lodine gathered some men and confronted the robbers at the depot and a gunfight ensued. Sheriff Lodine and a local merchant, John Sundblad were both killed in the battle along with one of the bank robbers. Inside the depot, the bullets can be seen still encased in the walls. It now houses the Model T's and Hummel Collection of Ed Sundholm. I would have liked to have gone inside again...maybe on my next trip home! Have a great day everyone...and as always, feel free to share!
