I'm not sure if these have been on the site before but it's such an interesting looking machine I thought I'd post this photo from someone on my site. Not a great photo and, as yet, no text sent with the photo, so I don't actually know why I've been sent the photo. The wing mirrors are a bit odd to say the least. Supplied or possibly made by Argyle Automatics and dated 1895. Anyone know more?

It does look a bit like it, doesn't it? But the text provided says:
To me that suggests the current owner surmised the lift off hinges on each side panel were for mirrors and added them. It seems more likely an operator added the lift off hinges as a means of securing the machine on location.ufobazza wrote:Three lift off hinges on each side panel which were possibly for mirror flaps. Two hinges on top for a maker’s name and also a carrying handle. Evidence of previous tags attached to the rear boards... Repatriated with two original demo "Wings"
