This is a 1911 steamroller made by Rushton-Proctor Ltd of Lincoln, England. It was purchased by New Westminster city in 1912, and was in use until 1969. Since that time it has spent time in a variety of museums around British Columbia, and was returned to the City of New Westminster in June 2010. It's now in the care of the New Westminster Museum & Archives, where money is being raised for its restoration.
