Stanley Steam Car

By TonyFrith
As a continuation from my last upload , yes some of you got it right after looking on my web site

I did like Ty Chee answer , after all the suspension cant be that great in a old car

They were looking at another person putting a pipe in the stream under the bridge so they could pump water into the water tank

This is it going away up a hill liked the steam trail

Excellent composition using the slope and breaking the "usual rule" (giving the vehicle more space to travel into than it leaves behind) in order to display the steam. Well thought out, Tony.
I remember the sight well from the 1950s as a neighbour drove a steamer regularly, though it was a White not a Stanley...

Nice shot, it looks like its moving fairly quickly up that hill, certainly cheaper than petrol to run,

Great shot nice and sharp on the wheels. Cause the exhaust makes the shot. Well done

A classoc shot of a classic car Tony, was going to say not a sight you'd see very often, but maybe it's in our not to distant future, if fuel costs keep going the way they have recently.

What is it about smoking in public places?
