Why are you reporting this puzzle?

This vehicle is one of several supplied to Simmonds, Hunt & Montgomery, Liverpool and was part of a fleet designed for use on the roads, hauling a variety of trailers.
After World War Two these tractors were taken over by Criddle & Co, manufacturers of oil cake, and ran between their works in Great Homer Street and the docks.

Manufactured by Sentinel Limited, Shrewsbury, Shropshire and is number 6842 with the registration number KA 6147.
It uses an advanced vertical boiler with a superheater to supply a multi-cylinder simple steam engine under the floor.

My father has an apprentice worked on these as a blacksmith repair various iron fittings, also rope and the towing hook, which was apparently a large tapered piece of wrought iron formed as a hook to pull the trailers, unfortunately if the driver was too hard on the power it would straighten the hook out and leave the trailer behind, bearing in mind there would be NO brakes on these trailer, only chocks for parking when unhitch from tractor unit.

I am unable to increase size of puzzle due to quality of picture.

About 20mph flat out

Wonder what sort of speed these would have had on the road?

What a story? You can almost smell the scene and sense the dockside bustle, thanks.
