White River Valley Antique Show...

A few weeks ago the little town of Elnora hosted the 30th Annual White River Valley Antique Show. Elnora is a small town just west and a little north of Odon, and Candace and I spent time looking at the various interesting exhibits. Since this is primarily an agricultural area, a large focus of the antique fair was on old steam-powered tractors - and how they assisted farming practices in days gone by.

Here are some photos of the day!

 Horses are still used in farming in the area.
