Image showing an Aveling & Porter steam roller outside the Red Lion Inn on Boscawen Street in Truro. It is probably about to move the cabman's shelter. Aveling & Porter were a British agricultural engine and steam roller manufacturer started in 1862 by Thomas Aveling and Richard Thomas Porter producing their first steam engine in 1865. The company became the largest manufacturer of steam rollers in the world but by 1900 had gone in to decline as American companies started to produce more efficient machinery.
