Steam Trucks

Sometimes called "locomobiles", they were produced in England as late as 1950, which certainly only shows the reluctance of engineers to abandon steam power as a viable means of on-road transportation. Starting in 1905, various models of steam-trucks, or "lorries" graced UK streets, not changing that much in appearance through the years
