Not Edinburgh

Most of the photos on the EdinPhoto web site relate to Edinburgh.

However, I've made an exception here and included two English photos, sent to me by Derek Hambly, Cornwall, in the hope that somebody might be able to answer the questions that Derek has asked.

 

Traction Engines

More Photos?

Mike Jarron, whose family now owns the steam roller photographed at Cluny Drive, Morningside (above) is keen to see more photographs of old steam rollers in Edinburgh.

I have also been asked if there are any photos of old steam rollers in  Midlothian.

If you know of any more photos of steam rollers or traction engines in or around Edinburgh, please e-mail me.     Thank you.
