The Yost, in all its unrestored glory. This is a pretty rare and special machine, and Will Davis featured the one owned by Angie Jimenez on his site a few years ago. Looking at the pictures of that one, you get some sense of the potential for restoration here, but it would take a far stronger (wo)man than I.
100 years old, and not afraid to show her age. Just 50 francs! Any takers? Although if recent history is any indication, it will not be there when I return next week. Some new collectors in the region, perhaps.
