In this month's Old Glory Magazine, July 2020
A brief history on the "famous" School Professor and Engineer; William Stephenson-Peach, 1852-1919.
Stephenson-Peach is a forgotten Lawn Mower pioneer and Credited with the invention of the Electric Roller, Electric lawnmower and Steam powered Roller Lawnmower.
Some interesting photographs of the Engineering Workshop used by Repton School next to Askew House in Repton. plus the patent drawings of the electric roller and electric ride on mower.
This again raises the debate on the origin of Stephenson Peach's "inventions" and how much (if any?) we owe in collaboration to Thomas Green of Leeds!
And the recurring question; - Thomas Green (?) is sat on the electric powered Roller, that Stephenson-Peach patented in 1895, when Thomas Green died in 1892!
A topic for discussion with the historians.....
