Summary[edit]

Description

Image of the Thornycroft Steam Dust-Cart developed in 1896 and first used by Chiswick District Council in London, England. Thornycroft made steam trucks, but this tipper version was an adaption for dust-cart purposes. The front cab included the boiler which provided 180psi pressure, and the twin cylinder compound engine (3" + 6" by 3" stroke) was mounted low down. Final drive chain is visible in the photo. Although Messrs Thornycroft was responsible for the design and engineering, the bodywork (and maybe the chassis too) was made for them by the Bristol Wagon and Carriage Company.
