While I was reading the catalogue I found that Bryan made also steam trucks . Does anyone have photos of this truck?
There is one in the page I have posted near the threshing machine.

Notice how the engine looks a lot like a 20hp Stanley. Perhaps they were sourced from Stanley. I believe at least one newly built Stanley "Gentleman's Speedy Roadster" is running a Bryan engine. Here is a great link for Stanley info: http://www.stanleymotorcarriage.com/index.htm
