Caption: Steam traction engine, photographed at a steam rally in England. Traction engines were widely used in farming & engineering until the advent of the internal combustion engine. Their uses on the farm included providing power for a variety of implements, including harvesters & threshing machines. Civil engineering projects, such as bridge & road building required them for transportation of men & materials (they frequently towed large trailers); adaptions of the basic traction unit included road rollers, steam shovels, diggers & tractors.
