"The Bosworth was a two-passenger steam surrey that developed 7 1/2 hp and was built by Frank C. Bosworth in the stable of his home at 119 Main Street in Saugus.
It was begun in 1903, completed in 1904, and received Massachusetts Automobile Register No. 8634 on September 27th of that year.
Family members recall that the Bosworth Steamer was successfully tested and was driven on the roads around Saugus Frequently."
The Bosworth Steamer. This photograph also appears on page 138 of Kimes & Clark. Ca: 1903 - 1904.
The Bosworth Steamer from the left rear. This photograph shows the interior of the stable in which Bosworth built his car. Ca: 1903 - 1904.
The automobile that appears at the left of the photograph is unidentified, but indicates that the Bosworth Family had purchased automobiles at an early date. This photo may have been taken long after the Steamer was completed.
The Bosworth Steamer technical view from the rear looking forward. Although the Bosworth is primarily piped with what appears to be cast iron, note the fuel pressure automatic that looks similar to Stanley automatics. These items could be purchased from catalogues by 1903 - 1904. This photograph may have been taken during construction to document progress.
