Early Foster Traction Engine

Interesting old photograph of an unidentified engine, which I would say at a guess is an early Foster from around the turn of the century:

Early Foster General Purpose Engine

A similar engine would be Foster 3710, which was built in 1908. The owners plate on the side of the engine is visible but just out of focus when zooming in. I don't have any information on where the picture was taken but it is quite likely to have been in the East of England / Midlands where Fosters seemed had a good trade and did a lot of their early business.

Hello David, I am not sure if you can help me. My Wifes grandfather was the original owner of VL 8371 a foster General Purpose Engine, we are aware that it is still running and is preserved, I would like to find out more about where it is so I could advise my mother in law.

This is very good pictures and also want to become a great photographer then I will see more picture of the unique and show the story of the ancients time. The pictures have more deeply meaning for the users. Then users janettes-studio have a more point of view about these pictures but I want to see the courageous and strong believe in the pictures. I see the first time the big engine.
