Book details

front cover


Price: £8.00

This is a reprint of a catalogue of traction engines, steam tractors and steam road rollers, published at the beginning of the twentieth century by J & H McLaren, a steam road vehicle manufacturer based in Leeds.

Running to over 60 pages, this publication has many illustrations to accompany listings and descriptions of these fine machines, and offers a glimpse into trade in the colonial era with sections devoted to engines' use overseas.

A must for anyone interested in traction engines, steam vehicles of any sort, or Edwardian engineering in general.
