The age of the traction engine is now
past, but these romantic leviathans of road and field excite great
interest not only among those who remember them in their heyday, but
also those brought up in the age of the lorry and tractor.
Malcolm Ranieri, who has been
photographing preserved steam for over twenty years, has assembled
this classic selection of photographs of the best of British
traction engines, rollers, steam wagons and more. Photographed at
work and at rest at locations all over the United Kingdom, all the
major manufacturers - with famous names like Fowler, Burrell and
Aveling & Porter - are represented.
With a chapter on showmen's
engines, packed with fantastic colour photographs.
