More Ilford at Pilford! This time the “Large Steam Exhibits” as the programme calls them – traction engines to you and me! All these are made with my Rolleicord Va and are on Pan-F. Below we see a Aveling & Porter DT Tractor dating from 1929 and owned by John Quick.
Above a Fodgen Steam Wagon owned by Mr Martin White, he has two! One is a C-Type one is a 5 ton. I can’t identify from the programme which this is. Below is, I believe, a Wallis and Steevens (yes correct spelling!) 6ft wide, Steam roller, which hails from Verwood, Dorset – just up the road!
Above is an 8 ton steam roller owned by Mr David Loader from Bournemouth, while below is another shot of the Burrel traction engine from the start, but this time with an onlooker!
Last but not least – this lovely engine with boiler wood clad. It was parked facing the other way around from the others, with the sun on it’s rear, so I photographed it that way! It doesn’t appear to be in the programme, perhaps a late entry?
