Mann’s Patent Steam Cart and Wagon Co Ltd

Not far away in Pepper Street were Mann's Patent Steam Cart and Wagon Co another major manufacturer of steam traction engines and other road vehicles. A blue plaque also marks this works. (picture) Looking at the buildings we see that the offices were at the front of the complex with the works behind, typical of how many of the works were arranged. Where as the other works we have seen have lost their original workshops, this works has survived intact.

Several books have been published about the Leeds engine building industry, a list is displayed in the Links and Further Reading section.
