Caption: Richard Trevithick (1771-1833). 1816 portrait by John Linnell, of the British engineer and father of locomotive power Richard Trevithick. Trevithick built his first road steam locomotive in 1801 and went on to construct a locomotive with its own circular railway track (1808). However, over this period Trevithick lost nearly all his funding. He moved to Peru and became involved with Simon Bolivar, the revolutionary. His investments there were also unsuccessful and he was forced to return home, where he died a pauper. Image from Histoire de la locomotion terrestre, by Charles Dollfus and Edgar de Geoffroy, France, 1935.
