The above truck production was after he got going. Here is the start.
The factory produced steam lawn mowers. How handy for the missus to whip around the backyard. Suppose it was a good idea on football fields. Don't know what the board in front is all about, maybe to sweep aside sleeping dogs like a railway cow-catcher.
Next move was to use this handy little lawnmower engine on a tricycle then on a real car.
