Steampunk Tractors

Thursday, 24 January 2013

Yesterday my fiancee and I went to visit Whiteman Park in Perth (Australia).  One of the places there is the tractor museum, housing a variety of tractors, new and old.  One was this piece of machinery.

A 1921 Fowler Traction Engine, it dates to a little after the general era associated with steampunk, but it wouldn't exactly be out of place in it.  It is also much larger that the photograph indicates.  The rear wheel actually stands as tall as I do.

Of course it would be remiss of me not to take the opportunity to post some images of other tractors of a steampunk look.
