Steam traction engines were most widespread in Scotland from the 1880s until the 1940s - mainly for road haulage, powering threshing mills, ploughing and, in steam roller form, in road-making. The book describes the use of steam power on Scottish road and field, and places National Museum Scotland's 1907 Marshall traction engine in its historical context with details of its construction, acquisition and restoration. A key feature of the book is the large number of extensively captioned contemporary photographs, many never prevously published. These photographs provide a vivid insight into the construction and use of the machines, and the conditions of those who worked with them.
