Road Roller

Now I think this is Redcar station and the road roller is getting a lot of attention, a very early date by the look of the small girls dress. Craig tells us: ”I believe the Roller is a Redcar product! Which is possibly why the crowd are there. Mr Fred Senior of Rycroft Works, Redcar Lane, Redcar; was advertising these machines in the 1930’s and had taken out patents in 1910. Unusual machine in that the engine and transmission were contained within the roller wheel.”

Many thanks to Craig for the update.
