A lovely bit of Cheshire engineering for #fodenfriday. The sole surviving Foden Showmans Engine 'Prospector' as seen at Dorset in 2016. #steamengine #tractionengine #showmansengine #greatdorsetsteamfair #steamrally #brass #foden

If you look carefully, you can see a bucket of water hanging on a string being carried between the two engines. The bucket must not spill or touch the ground! The person between the engines is measuring the distance between them and making sure there's no cheating involved 😉

Didn't know whether to save this for #fowlerfriday or not.... excellent bit of Leeds product placement at Beamish with Burrell Road Engine 'Semper Fidelis'. #throwbackthursday #thetfordthursday #Burrell #tractionengine #steamengine #roadlocomotive #fowler #beamish #beamishmuseum

#tbt #ThrowbackThursday (“traction engine Thursday” doesn’t have the same ring, does it? 😁) to last year.
I love the combination of the smell of steam and oil takes me right back to my childhood, and in particular the live steam Sundays that used to be held at the Birmingham Museum of Science and Industry in Newhall Street.
Just as that seems a lifetime ago, it’s amazing for us now to think that these quaint lumps of iron were once cutting edge technology. Not only did they revolutionise the way we live, they also changed the working landscape, generating a migration from rural to city living and a change in the way us humans live.
20” x 24” oil on panel, available for £95 from www.clivebryant.com with free uk delivery - link in bio and navigate to “Artwork | Studies - Reduced Prices”. .
