this steam roller doesn't look identifiable because ou only see it from rear !! a shot from the front end would have really helped

and it's only a documentary anyway, perhaps should go

from the rear most steam roller look the same, I could come up with any vintage american steam roller and claim it to be it !! :o

If this was in 1903, it's interesting that there would even be any steam rollers in 1903.

In 1916 the Buffalo Steam Roller Company merged with the Kelly-Springfield Company to form the Buffalo-Springfield Road Roller Company Springfield, Ohio.

Has a solid flywheel like a Kelly-Springfield.

The Buffalo-Springfield Roller Co. was formed as a merger of the Buffalo Pitts Co. and the Kelly-Springfield Road Roller Co. (before to 1902 known as the O.S. Kelly Co.)

so could be a Kelly Sprirngfield / O.S. KELLY then ?

has a solid flywheel indeed and position matches but the thing is just too little visible to ever know it for sure !!

Steamroller
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In America, the Buffalo-Springfield Roller Company was a large builder. J. I. Case made a roller variant of their famed farm engines, but had a small market share.

So, the odds are fair that it's a Kelly-Springfield. Could all other makes be proven to be unlikely?

I suppose the odds are it's O.S. Kelly or Kelly-Springfield based on the flywheel.
