From left, brothers Elwood, Tom East and Sid East with the miniature steam-powered tractor their father built in 1932, at Tom East's home on Old U.S. 27 in Nicholasville. Curtis East made the 1-horsepower tractor for his son Elwood. The tractor stayed in the family for all of the East children to play with until Curtis gave it to the University of Kentucky in 1946 for display in Anderson Hall. It remained there until 1987, when it was returned to the family.
