Ruston Hornsby Tracklayer short film 1908

Product no.: 1537

1537 Probably one of the first  films ever made to sell a machine.  It was originally shot on 35mm film. Despite the novelty of what it featured  the only lasting effect was that the whole design was sold to an American  company who put more effort into it.  The film demonstrates to machines one was internal conbustion and the other was Steam powered.  The steam version fininhed up in Youkon as the only sale effected.   In turn they  inspird  the first landships which became better know as tanks.  After the first World War the American licensees became known as  Caterpillar.  Even after so many years they were certainly impressive machines.
