A great photograph showing a whole bunch of kids posing on a small steam locomotive. The scene may be located in Lovell’s Flat, which is near the southeast coast of New Zealand near Dunedin. The lettering on the side appears to read in part, Lovell’s Flat Coal, but we cannot make out the rest. Hopefully our readers can tell us more about the scene and the engine. The photo was sent to us courtesy of Derek Finlay of New Zealand.
A 1905 Stanley poses with the owner’s family in front of a classic farmhouse of the type found throughout New England. This particular car presents a very rare combination of the so-called coffin nose that Stanley used on all non-condensing vehicles from this year on, with a tiller steering setup found on earlier models that did not have the coffin nose. The model G was produced with a traditional steering wheel and column as well, which is found on the only unrestored example that survives. Photo courtesy of Kelly Williams.
Another splendid White steam car owned by Clinton Atkinson, about whom we have posted before, including his 1909 White model O. This one is a 1910 model MM, rated at 40hp. The photo dates to 1916 from the New Hampshire plate that is just visible. The car is currently undergoing restoration. Photo courtesy of Bruce Atkinson.
