I am enclosing a photograph of an engine taken at a South Australian rally. The subject matter is an O.A. Bagshaw, 4 HP, which is a facsimile of the American built Olin. The latter had been imported by Henry Berry of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, c. 1902, there being one fine example in running order. The O. A. Series was first introduced sometime around 1904, and continued for at least twenty years or thereabouts. The firm of J. Bagshaw was established in 1838 in Adelaide, South Australia; the same firm copied the Z Series Fairbanks Morse, which is another story! Bagshaws merged with J. H. Horwood in 1924, becoming Hor-wood-Bagshaw.
