Picture includes illustration of model when completed
In the early 1900's businesses were looking for more economical ways of delivering their goods. One of the ideas put forward was the motorised delivery tricycle.These small, light delivery vehicles were ideal for the distribution of parcels within towns and cities. They were driven by lads in their early teens which helped keep running costs down. Many small businesses used them, particularly butchers and grocers who had to deliver a lot of small items over a wide area. In 1910 the GWR bought three such vehicles for use within London delivering parcels and advertising material.
