Stanley Register Online - 1948 Charlemont Meet
Last update:

The very first large gathering of the steam car hobby!
There were no scheduled tours, only a Sunday 14-mile round trip to the Wing residence.
No tours were needed, as all cars were driven to and from their homes,
    including 2 from the Marshall collection in Delaware, a 620-mile round trip.
The meet was written up in Bulb Horn.

11 cars were reported to have attended, but only 9 can be identified from this article. 

Edwin W. Battison, 1903 Stanley [#479]
T. Clarence Marshall, 1913 Stanley [#6889]
Henry Wing, Jr., 1913 Stanley [# unknown]
Henry Wing, Sr., 1914 Stanley [#7517]
Thomas C Marshall, 1914 Stanley [#7742]
Stanley Ellis, 1914 Stanley [#7781]
E. W. Larson, 1922 Stanley [740 roadster, # unknown]
Murray Brown, 1909 White
Dr. John P. Miller, 1910 White

(51 years later,  #479, #6889, and #7781 were again in the same place
for the 1999 Mt. Washington Centennial celebration.)

This photo from the Marshall Collection shows:

Also from the Marshall Collection, this photo appears to show 9 attendees.
A handwritten note on the back of this photo lists 12 cars in attendance; all those listed above plus

Paul Bourdon, 1911 [sic - 1912] Stanley [#6373]
Earle Eckel, 1914 Stanley [#7769]

However, there appear to be 3 condensing Stanleys in this photo.  Larson's roadster on the far end.
