Frederick Lamlough designed the Albany Steamer, better known as the Lamplough-Albany Steamer, which was produced by the Albany Manufacturing Company, Ltd. in 1903.
As the photocopied trade catalogue below describes, it featured "a pair of engines . . . coupled together with the cranks set at right angles."
Its steam generator featured "an entirely new method of steam generation, and is the result of considerable experiment, and might be termed the generation of steam with steam, first advocated by Lamplough in 1884." As early as 1896, Lamplough designed a shaft driven steam car.
The Albany Manufacturing Co. Ltd made both petrol and steam cars between 1903 and 1905.
