My vector drawing of Richard Trevithick’s London Steam Carriage 1803.

Richard Trevithick built a prototype road locomotive at Camborne in his native Cornwall and in 1801 he ran this several hundred yards up a hill with several people hanging on it and whilst they were in a pub celebrating the event it set fire to the shed it was in and was destroyed.

On completion of a new Steam Carriage in July of 1803 the London Steam Carriage, as it was known, was driven about 10 miles through the streets of London to Paddington and back through Islington with 7 or 8 guest passengers, the streets having been closed to other vehicles. This was the first trip of a self-powered passenger carrying vehicle in the world.

I have opened a shop with CafePress to sell some of my designs on clothing, iPhone & laptop cases, jewellery and lots more:
