A Piece of History

The very first Victa Lawn Mower! This is the prototype for what went on to become one of the great success stories of Australian ingenuity. The first motorised lawn mower, complete with coffee tin for a fuel tank, built in an Aussie backyard. Now every home has one and the creator is a multi-millionaire. This little beauty is on display at The Powerhouse Museum in Sydney where I spent a couple of very enjoyable hours.
