[Post Followup] [San Francisco Memories Board]

The steam wagon, to which several improvements have been made, was out yesterday careering through the streets and provoking the wonder and admiration of hundreds of spectators. It was under easy control, worked well, and is capable of drawing a heavy draught. Steam wagons will undoubtedly come into general use before many years shall have elapsed.
