This very nice early survivor is a typical vertical boilered steam lorry as built by Thornycroft of Basingstoke, Hampshire in the early 1900's. I don't know anything about the history of this example as there is no display board for it, but it is preserved at the Milestones Museum, Basingstoke, very close to where it was built over a century ago, in the colours of the County Borough of Bournemouth, Dorset
