Looks like a parking brake was optional on trucks and floats in the last photo.

Story was, the rubber tyre'd dozer up front stalled out and they were waiting another to turn up for some extra added HP.

3.7 tonnes on a single wheel dolly, with WOODEN spoke wheels is pretty good.
If you look behind the man in the "Bombay Bloomers", it appears there is another log on the dolly as well.
Is the very first roadtrain?
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

I think you will find it's the same log.

The apparent join is the second chain holding the dolly in place.

But I have been wrong many times before, ask my wife!

I was not fooled by the chain but maybe by the shadow or whatever, behind Bombay Bloomer man. I makes the diameter of the log look greater. What is that to his left? Looks like a row a pre-historic solar panels, although there was never such a thing.

Could be Glass panels on the roof of the drying rooms.

Considering they weighed less than a ton and a little more for the truck version and had wooden wheels with an automatic 2-speed gearbox driven by a 40hp engine the Ford Model T was unsurpassed for usefulness in the weight for age stakes.
