Saw this at an auction I was at this past weekend. All the other pictures referenced WWI and 1914.
Great Photo! Thanks for sharing it here.
That's one hellacious steam tractor!
Found these two
Anyone know what make the steam traction engine is? Bud.
traction engine looks english or canadian. several names come to mind, marshal, robey, fowler, etc., but cannot tell positively.
The word 'usine' is French for factory, and one guy is wearing clogs, so Belgium or France? That's a big engine, the stack doesn't look British to me, but I'm no steam expert.
All of the photo's I saw were captioned in french. I even translated a couple of them for the auctioneer. Another one, which I didn't take a picture of, had a steam tractor and read "Items stolen from Germany, 1914"
