Antique Power Museum Field Trip

History: Richard Erickson has been collecting treasures from the past his entire life. In addition to viewing over 120 antique farm tractors, more than 50 motorcycles dating back to 1911, antique trucks and steam engines, we will see a 1960's-era salvage garage, a restored shoe repair store from Salt Lake City's North Temple Street, a print shop, complete with working presses, a vintage service station, two historic cabins from the nearby Heber Valley, a blacksmith shop, a restored Salt Lake City café, and a shingle and lathe mill.

The Erickson Foundation has graciously allowed us to come and shoot a full day at the Antique Power Museum. This Museum is open to the public only once a year but we were able to have them make an exception for us,this way we don’t have to deal with the crowds and shoot as much as we like. The Foundation has asked us to please not use any of the pictures for commercial usage (No sale of the Images) so please respect their wishes. Part of our agreement with the museum is to provide club images for their promotional use. After you've finished processing your images you will be asked to upload a few of your best to compensate them for their time.

Here are some of the things you can find in their museum:

  • 1946 Indian Motorcycle once owned by Steve McQueen
  • Model T Ford once owned by Gene Autry
  • Gibson Guitars once owned by Mother Maybelle Carter, mother-in-law to famous country singer, Johnny Cash
  • 1938 Lincoln Convertible used in the movie "Bugsy"
  • Time clock used on the Bonneville Salt Flats from 1838 to ??  Freddy Ludlow set two world speed records in 1938 using this time clock.
  • Actual workout weights used by boxer Jack Dempsey
